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. They delight us with the Sancerre cuvée François de la Grange 2016, lively and fine, good mouth with notes of linden, almond nose, all fruit, well typed. We are also under the spell with this white Sancerre 2018, from the terroir of the white lands, all in suavité, ample in mouth, very harmonious, a wine that smells hazelnuts and white peach, with a note of freshness very seductive on the palate. Taste the Sancerre red 2017, with hints of raspberry, a beautiful intense dress, very structured on the nose as well as on the palate. And still the formidable Sancerre rouge l'Enchantement 2015, vinification and ageing in oak barrels, purple in colour, with the nose dominated by strawberry and blackberry, rich and structured, of a nice finish, a classic wine, with mature but well-present tannins. Seductive Sancerre rosé, always the best of the appellation, with delicate fruity, with nuances of peach and small dried fruits, a wine very pleasant, dry and suave at the same time, which combines freshness with roundness, and a superb sparkling Secret of Anaëlle rosé, of great finesse, with a gourmet nose, crunchy in the mouth, very thirst-quenching in the final.
