  • A fresh, invigorating and mineral expression of Sancerre from the famous Silex soils, this stunning cuvée shows beautiful structure and longevity. 

The region's rolling hills and semi-continental climate produce beautifully structured Sauvignon Blancs that are crisp and fresh, evoking aromas of ripe gooseberries, smoke and gunflint notes. The grapes for this cuvee come from two plots rich in clay and with a high flint content, known as Silex. Silex is a type of sedimentary soil which is rich in flint; renowned for imbuing the wines with a distinctive flinty, mineral character. The clones are low-yielding and produce healthy fruit with excellent maturity.

Chateau de Sancerre is one of the rare French wine estates that bears the name of its appellation. The Chateau itself dates back to the Middle Ages when it was established by Louis de Sancerre in the 14th century. Since then, the vineyards have always existed alongside. The estate is situated on the left bank of the Loire and overlooks a unique terroir of four distinctive soil types, across its 55-hectare vineyard. The entire vineyard has obtained the sustainable certification HVE Level 3 which officially recognizes the environmental performance of winegrowers, including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertilizer use, and water resource management. Since 2020, the estate has been cultivated using organic practices.
