Map of Sancerre AOC


30 Hectares, 24 of which are contiguous with the cellar

   Wine-growers for four successive generations, the estate offers familial continuity whose main concern is combining hard work and know-how in order to create the consistently subtle fruity wines so
widely sought after by connoisseurs.



We are dedicated to making consistent quality wine

     Our land is arid and slightly sloped, two- thirds of the soil being clay-with-flint and the remaining one-third limestone.

     The local terminology used to describe this soil is "argilo-siliceux" or siliceous clay, soil rich in flint which provides a continual warming of the vine. In addition, this land lies on the highest point of the hills east of the vineyard

     The oxford-like soil, locally called "caillottes", corresponds to stoney , chalky terrain. From the very beginning, we chose to use state-of-the-art equipment enabling us to continually be high performing. All of our wines are vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel vats.

     After restructuring in 1980, our estate now boasts 30Ha of vines, 24 of which border the cellar. These 30Ha were divided into five large parcels of land which aided in rapidly working the vineyard mechanically using machines such as the mechanical grape-harvester which was introduced into the vineyard in 1980.

     All the wines from our vines are born on the estate. The abuse of alcohol can be hazardous to your health. Consume with moderation.
