MEET THE WINEMAKERS 

 

The climate is temperate with a continental influence, the growing season is dry and average day time summer temperatures are around 26ºC, perfect conditions for growing Sauvignon Blanc.  

 

The main wines made are SancerrePouilly-Fumé and Menetou-Salon with the Sauvignon Blanc for the Sancerre growing on flinty and chalky, clay based soils. The estate is certified in its ecological farming practises and is in conversion to organic status.

 

Eric and Sophie look for delicacy and a lively acidity in their wines along with vibrant fruit character and a stony undertone.
