This complante?e plot of Sauvignon Blanc is grown in respect with his immediate environment and produces a Sancerre of character, rich and vibrant"
This exceptional vineyard, located on a former forest and overlooking a former wild wooded area, offers a magnificent biodiversity, where flora and fauna meet and enrich this exceptional terroir. Planted in the 70's, our parcel "Les Garennes" is distinguished by its limestone soil dating from the Jurassic Oxfordian (~ 130 M years before J.C.). Cultivated according to the methods of certified organic farming, the vine draws all the minerals that it needs from the deepest of its shellfish fossils base. This East/South-East exposed slope delivers fruity, crisp and racy grapes. All these elements are essential to the making of a great single-parcel wine.
Oxfordian Jurassic limestone
It all begins during the "tour of the vines", by tasting the berries right from the grapes. We thus determine the date of harvest at optimum ripeness. Then transported to our gravity winery, the grapes are pressed slowly for a gentle extraction. Only the first juices, the most qualitative, are used for this cuvée. Finally, an aging of nine months on fine lees in stainless steel vats, gives our Sancerre "Les Garennes" all the quintessence of its terroir.
Displaying a great aromatic persistence, "Les Garennes" offers notes of lily, vine and apricot. On the palate, delicate aromas of acacia flowers, pear and honey.
High scale seafood (turbot filet slightly roasted, scallops marinated with ginger, ...) or tasty white meats (poultry, veal).
