  • The delicate bouquet of raspberry and wild strawberry jam is layered with an appealing hint of smoke. Silky smooth and rounded on the palate with lovely purity of fruit leading to a touch of pepper on the finish.
The grapes come from three hectares of vineyard within the estate, from vines with an average age of 30 to 35 years, which produce low yields of concentrated fruit. The vines face a south-easterly orientation, maximising exposure to the sun to assist ripening of the berries. The soils are 50% clay flint, which impart smoky mineral characters and 50% clay limestone, resulting in elegant and fresh wines. The vineyard is currently in conversion to organic status, indeed the farming methods used over many years have followed these principles. Vineyard management techniques include ploughing the soil instead of using herbicides, growing cover crops between the rows of vines and sexual confusion of predators, to maintain the health of the vines and the biodiversity of the environment.

The domain is located five kilometres south of Sancerre in Thauvenay and was established by Serge Laloue in the 1960s. Christine and her brother Franck have continued their father’s work since the 1990s and Clément, Franck's son, recently joined the domain following his viticulture studies. The estate revolves around an environmentally responsible approach with meticulous work in the vineyards to respect the natural balance of the vines and obtain the highest quality grapes. In 2019, the domain started the conversion to organic farming, a natural progression as their farming methods were already very close to organic. The first certified organic vintage will be 2023. The domain is HVE certified, a complementary certification recognising environmental biodiversity and natural resource management.
