From the wine to the glass

From the wine to the glass

Throughout the year, the vines are under constant observation. Over the seasons we lavish on them the most appropriate care In the respect for the tradition of wine grower's job.

In this spirit, we fight, in the most biologically way available, against diseases and parasites, and care for the wine according to lunar rhythms and plant grass in the vineyards in order to restore balance and structure to the ground.

After being carefully sorted, the grapes are pressed slowly in a pneumatic press to extract the best fruit. The juice is then transferred into stainless steel tanks for fermentation in a progressive and controlled temperature. White is aged on the lees until February while red is left to age for 10 months in oak barrels from the region such as the forest of Tronçais, Bertrange, Nevers and Allier, to acquire all of its structure.

An ideal Cellar for the Sancerre

Our cellars, which are situated in the village, house the stainless steel tanks in the first cellar as well as our tasting room, ideal for enjoying the new vintage!

We have 2 vaulted cellars : one with  the oak barrels for the winemaking of our red wines and the second one with oak and acacia barrels for the ageing of our white wine, Cuvée Pauline.
