A bit of history :
Pauline, my great-grandmother founded this vineyard in the early twentieth century and it seemed natural to pay tribute to this little, enterprising woman who always tried to help. For her we have developed one of the rare "flint Sancerres" fermented in acacia barrels and oak barrels, according to the traditions of my grandfather, Paul Cantin known as Robert. It’s still a secret! He was a cooper, and after the war, shortages of certain timber species required working with little used woods, therefore he manufactured acacia barrels used for his own wine. I have great enthusiasm for tasting wines which were made in this fashion, so I chose to draw inspiration from his life to give birth to this wine dedicated to my ancestors and the enjoyment of taste buds!

Terroir :
Our Pinot Noir is grown on the hills southeast of Sancerre and thrives on clay-limestone and flint.

Vineyard work :
The grapes for "Cuvée Pauline" are harvested lately so as to obtain the best maturity. The yield of these plots is intentionally low and our annual production is 1.500 to 2000 bottles.

Winemaking :
After the fermentation, this wine is aged 11 months in oak barrels to developp its complexity. We develop this vintage according to strict selection criterias. Only a few wines are for sale.

Tasting :
Complex and spicy nose with a lots of length in mouth. Flavours of black fruits such as blackcurrant and blackberry.

Food & Wine pairing :
This Pinot Noir needs strong and spicy food. Serve with red meat, marinated or braised meat.

Awards per vintage :
2018: Prix d'Excellence Vinalies Nationales
