les chasseignes

Locations known as “Les Chasseignes” are common-place in the Sancerre appellation. This local name designates Caillottes soil: shallow limestone soil and subsoil containing overlapping stones.

Our vines are located at Les Chasseignes, to the north-east of the village of Sury-en-Vaux at an altitude of 270 metres. The vines are south-east exposed and so receive the sun and wind from morning to evening.

Viniification and ageing takes place in stainless steel vats (50%) and barrels (50%) for 7 to 8 months, followed by bottling in spring.

This wine has elegant fruit aromas. On the palate, the limestone minerality provides good length and a long lingering finish. To be enjoyed on its own or with grilled fish.
