Situated in Bué in the Sancerre region of the Loire Valley, the Millet family has been
making wine for over six generations. Gérard and Isabelle have now been joined by
their son Steve. The Estate covers a total of 20 hectares of vineyards, of which 3
hectares are planted with Pinot Noir grapes. Some of the vines are 25 years old.
These vineyards are situated around various villages in the Sancerre region. This
family owned winery is well equipped and has recently invested in new heat
exchange equipment to ensure that the grapes and must are cooled to obtain
maximum freshness in the wine.
The appellation of Sancerre is part of the "central vineyards" of the Loire Valley, with
almost all of the appellation situated on the left bank of the Loire River, opposite
Pouilly Fumé. This region has a continental climate, as it is some 400 km from the
Atlantic Coast, with short, hot summers and long, cold winters, with early spring frosts
being an annual threat. The vines are grown in chalky soils.
Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After racking,
the wine was matured on its lees without undergoing malolactic fermentation. This
wine saw no oak ageing in order to maintain the purity of fruit.
An elegant Sancerre, with vibrant Sauvignon notes of grapefruit and lemon, good
weight and a clean crisp finish.
This delicious Sancerre is the perfect accompaniment to seafood, fish in a delicate
sauce and goat's cheese.
