The Fleuriet family has lived in Sancerre since the French Revolution and has a long history of farming, initially cattle, then as goat’s cheesemakers, grain, and latterly as vignerons, when 1991 their first vines were planted. Renaissance Fleuriet Freres was established in 2014 when brothers Benoit and Matthieu Fleuriet helped their close friend Stephane Marchand, who could no longer maintain his 7-hectare vineyard, which covers the most beautiful terroirs of Sancerre. They invested in the vineyards to restore them to their former glory, replanting some vines and turning to organic cultivation to preserve the terroir, environment, and biodiversity. The vineyard is certified organic and, in 2023, will be certified biodynamic. The name ‘Renaissance’ is evocative of their journey and honours the revival of the vineyards. Their wines are vinified with minimal intervention in a gravity-fed winery, are refreshing, have wonderful purity, and beautifully showcase the nuances of the Sancerre terroir.

Winery

The grapes come from a south-to-south-easterly facing vineyard situated 280 meters above sea level in the Sancerre appellation. The vines have an average age of 25 years and are planted at a density of 8,000 to 10,000 vines per hectare, yielding between 40 to 53 hl/ha. The soils comprise Caillottes, limestone, and clay pebbles, which reflect the sunlight on the vines, encouraging fruit ripening. The vineyard is certified organic, chemical preparations are not employed and the vineyard is converted to biodynamic certification. The biodynamic philosophy recognizes the connection between all living things, the importance of biodiversity, and sustainability, following the lunar cycles, earth rhythms, astrology, and the interconnection between these energy sources to dictate the timing of viticultural activity. The vineyard is cultivated manually, except ploughing and the grapes are hand-harvested.
