Wine estate in Sancerre in organic conversion

Certified HVE, we switched to Organic Agriculture in 2020 for certification in 2022 in order to preserve biodiversity and promote the revelation of terroirs. These certifications are the recognition of a work carried out for a long time in favor of nature. This passion for the land marks a range of racy, precise and mineral wines where the fruity expression is always respected.

Harvest

Immediatly after they are harvested, the grapes are pressed with great care in order to extract all the aromatic power. The must undergoes a cold settling with no added sulphites.
Then, the alcoholic fermentation occurs in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature between 15°C to 18°C during 3-4 weeks. The wine is racked off its sediments and impurities and rests on its fine lees with regular « bâtonnage » (lees stirring) in stainless steel tanks under nitrogen protection during 8 months to enhance the intensity, the depth and the finesse.
