Appellation: Sancerre A.C., Loire
The grapes for this cuvée were grown on our finest flint-based slopes facing the Loire River.
The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted and pressed very slowly. The must underwent 2 months of fermentation in oak barrels in the coolness of our historic cellars at the heart of the village of Sancerre which brings out the minerality of the terroir and smoothness from ageing on the lees. The wine is then barrel-aged for 12 to 16 months depending on the vintage.

Winery Tasting Notes
This cuvée’s golden colour is typical of barrel-aged wines.
The nose starts off with fruity aromas (citrus, candied orange peel, lychee) with a touch of vanilla from the wine’s barrel ageing.
Equally complex on the palate which gives this wine lovely fullness and good aromatic length.
The ideal serving temperature is 10°C.
