Description: Just east of Sancerre is the village of Chavignol, is the home of Domaine Paul Thomas. It is a small estate on the slopes of the Les Mont Damnés, from which they produce beautiful wines from the deepest, purest outcropping of Kimmeridgean limestone in Chavignol. Domaine Paul Thomas is run by Raphael Thomas, son of Paul. Raphael originally intended to pursue a career in physics, but after his father tragically passed away at the end of the harvest in 2000, he made the decision to carry out his father’s
legacy by returning to Chavignol and taking over management of the winery.
Tasting Notes: An energetic palate of orange, lime and green apple, with subtle tones of smoke, are brightened with flinty minerality. Beautiful with raw fish, such as a fluke or scallop crudo, it also pairs well with a range of light vegetable dishes or grilled shellfish, as well as other dishes.
