The vines are planted in communes within the Sancerre appellation. The terroirs are composed of diverse soil types: clay-limestone (30% terres blanches), limestone (30% caillottes), flint (25%) and sandy clay (15%). Grass is grown between the rows of vines to limit erosion and preserve the environment.
The grapes are harvested terroir by terroir when they reach their peak of ripeness. The grape juice is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks after which the wine is aged on fine lees for a minimum of 6 months. The wines from each terroir are then blended harmoniously to yield a unique and complex wine.

Winery Tasting Notes
Gold in colour with golden highlights.
Powerful aromatic intensity with citrus aromas and floral notes.
Soft at first, increasingly lively and mineral. Rich and well balanced on the palate. Fruity flavours of blood oranges and grapes.
This fresh, mineral wine with hints of fruit is a perfect match for seafood, fish, and goat’s cheeses such as the famous Chavignol. Serve at 10-12°C.
