Wine Spectator 88 points - Brisk, with flint and sel gris notes rippling along. A little shy on depth, but shows lovely cut and freshness, with a bony, tangy finish. Drink now. 4,300 cases made.

Wine maker notes
Produced from estate-grown and purchased fruit from trusted local farmers, this Sancerre is bright and fresh, with a ripe grapefruit and lime zest bouquet up front that gives way to a subtler hint of lemon pound cake. Very approachable in style, with flavors of fennel, star fruit, and lightly mulled peach mingling through the soft, lively, almond-tinged finish. Vines 25 years of age are planted in ancient clay soils. Vinified in stainless steel at low temperatures to maintain the freshness of the fruit, then aged on the lees for several months to add a touch of richness. Consume within 2-3 years alongside shellfish, salads, and soft cheeses.
Today, our estate extends nearly 56 hectares from which 80% is from the noble and very old grape variety, called Sauvignon, and as for the rest, from the most delicate and elegant of red grape varieties, called Pinot Noir.
We carry out a traditional cultivation, which combines the most ancestral methods passing by others from the biological or biodynamical culture and the most modern in terms of equipment.
The key word of the property being the respect for the terroir, we do our best to respect the environment which is our tool and which represents the heritage that we will pass on to the next generations.
