Overview

Chateaumeillant A.C.

100% Pinot Noir. This is a traditional, hand-harvested wine. The grapes are de-stemmed and placed in a vat for alcoholic fermentation during approximately 11 days of maceration.

The wine is then matured in vats following malolactic fermentation. Its aging potential depends on the vintage but there are always a number of good years in its future.

Great fruit and real pleasure characterise this fine wine of a soft and delicious charisma, reflecting the most beautiful terroirs of Châteaumeillant.

3 to 5 years.

Food Matching

Solissime's ample bouquet is ideal for your braised and pan-sautéed white or red meats. Glazed roast meats are a perfect match. Enjoy!

“In our endless quest for Excellence, we watch, carefully and patiently, as we look to Nature as our guide, taking inspiration from our Senses and energy from our Passion, with equal respect for knowledge and winegrowing methods that draw from the flourishing ecosystem that our ancestors bequeathed to us.”

Half a century ago, Henri Bourgeois, our grandfather, cultivated just a few hectares of vines in the heart of Chavignol, our beloved traditional villagein the Berry region, where all of us grew up.Henri Bourgeois was a pioneer. He gradually moved away from multi-crop farming, which, at the time, was the only way to feed his family,and specialized into winegrowing.It was no small risk but his passion for the vines got the better of his reason.

Under the management of his sons, Rémi and Jean-Marie, who very soon gained a reputation for discoveringmarvellous terroirs and making fine wines, the vineyard of Henri Bourgeois gradually extended over severalvillages in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, forming a mosaic of parcels cultivated with meticulous care.In the mid 80’s, a modern, eco-friendly cellar was built to provide exceptionally good conditionsfor careful winemaking and wine ageing.Our generation chose to modernise the equipment by using the advantageous topography of the village to builda gravity-fed winery. We also wanted to introduce new wines from selected parcels to bring out the true potential of each individual terroir, such as our Sancerre d’Antan and our Sancerre Jadis.Today the 72 hectares cultivated by our family composes a palette of 120 parcels.
