SANCERRE


HENRY NATTER

HENRY NATTERWinegrowing of 23 ha, where one cultivates human heat with the same care that one brings to the vines, privileging fauna and the flora, “brooding them” to extract their quintessence and to let them from it express itself as well as possible, during a perfectly controlled and traditional maturing. These impassioned owners have indeed in heart to make discover subtleties of their environment, their soil and their work, so that each one of their bottle is a source of user-friendliness. Their daughter, Mathilde, work with them, her brother, Auguste, occupy more cellar. Since nearly 25 years, the Natter family is vivid by an Hmong team - originating in the mountains of the Laos - integrated into the culture of the wine. She impregnated single relation that these women and men maintain with the vegetable world. Together, they engage and take part in the installation of a protection of the local biodiversity. In 2005, the winegrowing gained the Trophy of the Best Very Small Exporter, at the time of the fiftieth anniversary of the club of the exporters of France. The agricultural regional Meeting decreed in Cécile and Henry the price of Honor for “atypical Vine growers”. The family has in heart to make discover subtleties of their soil, their environment, their work so that their bottles are this discrete bond between nature and themselves: source of marvellous user-friendliness.
Exceptional Sancerre blanc L’Expression de Cécile “L’Essence des Terres Blanches” 2007, available only out of magnum in order to polish its ageing, of a large smoothness with much of expression, suave, with the complex bouquet where intermingle with the notes of almond, fresh apricot and heather, is a harmonious, rich and delicate wine at the same time, ideal on scallops. The Sancerre cuvée François de la Grange 2010, all in subtlety of aromas (fresh fruits, hawthorn), dryness, typified and scented, of powerful mouth and a long final, with delicate nuances of broom and quince. The 2009, powerful and very frankly in mouth, with the subtle nose, full and persistent, are elegant and distinguished, with the complex connotations where the flowers (hawthorn, broom) prevail, is all in persistence. The 2008, where intermingle with the notes of almond and white flowers, are all in roundness, with a note of freshness which is characteristic for him. Very beautiful red Sancerre the Enchantment 2009 (wine making and maturing out of barrels of oak), typified, with aromas of fern and fruits fresh, of a large smoothness, a wine with a quite persistent and powerful final, like this Expression de Cécile 2007, with the nuances of almond, mixing freshness and roundness with the palate. Their Sancerre rosé 2011, is always the best of the appellation, of beautiful color, with notes of orange and flowers white, full, fleshy, ideal on spiced mets. Excellent Sancerre blanc 2011, resulting from the soil of the white grounds, with the nose complex and powerful, very harmonious, with the connotations of small dried fruits and pear to the palate, distinguished mouth.
