Our estate is comprised of 16 hectares of AOC vineyards planted on the rather steep slopes that surround the villages of Sury-en-Vaux, Chavignol and Sancerre. 80% of our vines are planted in the calcareous clay soils known locally as "terres blanches", which give the wine its body, richness and complexity. The remaining 20% are planted in "caillottes" also referred to as "griottes", stony soils that lend lovely fruity notes to the wine.
Sauvignon Blanc grapes represent three quarters of our production and go into the making of our white Sancerre. Our red and rosé Sancerres are made from Pinot Noir grapes.
We do everything we can to take an environmentally responsible approach to do our part in preserving this unique terroir, an irreplaceable source of such flavourful wines.
