Summer in the Loire

Domaine Tinel-Blondelet

Tinel-Blondelet's Sancerre 2015 is Joanna Simon's 'Wine of the Week'! (July 6th 2017)

Annick Tinel-Blondelet has over 400 years of winemaking in her family. She took over the estate from her parents, Camille & Fernand, in 1983, and now represents the 12th generation of winegrowers in the family, working the estate with her sister Agnès.

Situated beside the old Roman road above the east bank of the Loire river, Tinel-Blondelet’s vineyards are sited on slopes of Kimmeridgian marl as found in the best vineyards of Chablis. The estate has been classified with the highest of the three available certifications for environmental status, has wonderful soils, which impart the world-renowned mineral nuances and complexity to their Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, while great fruit concentration is derived from the optimal ripeness of the grapes grown on the 35-year old vines that bask on the south-facing slopes.
