VINEYARD

The grapes are grown on the famous hilly slopes composing the 3 Terroirs of Sancerre : Caillottes (stones and clay), Terres Blanches (clay) and Silex (flints).

WINEMAKING

The grapes are quickly transported to the winery to minimize skin contact before gentle pressing into a pneumatic press. The grape juices are fermented traditionally in stainless steel tanks during 7 to 15 days.

AGEING

The newly made wine is aged on its fine lees in stainless steel tanks during at least 6 months. It is then blended and bottled in the spring following the harvest.

FOOD PAIRING

Great to enjoy as an apéritif. Goes very well with oysters or lobster but excellent with goatcheeses from the Loire Valley. (Crottin de Chavignol, Selles sur Cher, Sainte Maure de Touraine).

Tasting notes

COLOR

Green-yellow pale color.

NOSE

Intense vegetal and citrus aromas on the nose.

PALATE

An unctuous, yet powerful palate. The intense gooseberry flavors are complimented by a long lasting finale!
