Grape variety :

100% Sauvignon Blanc

 

Terroir :

Our sauvignon is settled on the south east side of the Sancerre appellation and is grown on flinty and chalky-clayey soils. Our plots spread over 3 areas : Thauvenay, Ménétréol sous Sancerre and Vinon.
Many years ago, we chose to take the ambitious high road of ecological transition involving a reduction in the use of chemical products, the recovery of biodiversity, the preservation of the soil’s potential and the management of resources, particularly water. In 2019, our wine-estates has achieved HVE3 certification, a High Environmental Value farming certificate.
We are now converting in organic practices by Ecorcert.

 

Winemaking :

We choose to harvest the grapes at night in order to help to concentrate the aromas, the flavors and less oxidation of fruit.
In order to optimize the quality of the crop, we keep our vines under constant observation : we limit our yields, start the harvest according to the maturity of each plot, hand-sort the grapes...
Grapes are slowly pressed to release of their aromas. Then, the juice undergoes alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature between 16°C to 21°C during 4 weeks.
The wine is maturing on its fine lees in stainless stexel tanks with nitrogen protection (to reduce sultphites) until the bottling is done at springtime.
The long ageing on fine lees gives the wines greater finesse and more intense aromas.


Tasting :

Our Sancerre appears pale golden in colour with upfront citrus and tropical fruits combined with minerality and hints on the nose.
The palate is full, fresh and delicate with passionfruit and zesty lemon, somewhat chalky with lively acidity, finishing long with hints of stony minerality.

 

Food & Wine pairing :

It could be sipped as an aperitif. Perfectly suited for seafood and fish dishes. Mixed salads are also a perfect match, particulary if the salad includes citrus fruits or goat cheese or chicken.
