The protected designation of origin Sancerre is one of the most known among appelation of the Center Val de Loire thanks to the grape variety world-famous of the White Sauvignon who allows to produce our Sancerre Blanc.
This appelation about 2 770 hectares is concentrated on 14 municipalities and produces three colors Blanc, Rosé and Rouge thanks to the grape variety of Sauvignon Blanc for her whites and the Pinot noir for its rosés and its rouges.
The vineyard is established on hills and well directed, exposed and protected hillsides which the soils are diversified particularly well and called according to their pedological characteristic. We find three terroir determined by the type of met ground there is Calcareous or « Calcaire » (or caillottes), argilo-limestones or « argilo-calcaire » (or Earth Blanche) and clays with flint « argiles à silex ».
For the Sancerre, its aromas translate most of the time floral notes up to the fruity notes such as citrus fruits (grapefruit, pomelos) up to the notes of flint which are determined by the grounds on which the vine grow.
White wines are of color pale green-gold and are dry but they generally have rather round mouths and balance on the freshness. Red wines have a beautiful dress cherry and their smell is floral. They are well-balanced wines, with the power and the sharpness.
Rosé wines are dry and fine, rather fat.See all wines |
The Pouilly-Fumé or Blanc-Fumé de Pouilly is exclusively a production of white wine of Protected designation of origin produced from the single-varietal of Sauvignon Blanc. His area of appelation extends of Mesves-sur-Loire including Pouilly-sur-Loire to Saint-Martin-sur-Nohain over distributed 1 320ha understands 7 municipalities.
The white wine Pouilly-sur-Loire is produced on the same area but with this difference that it is of another grape variety is the Chasselas grape. Careful also not to confuse Pouilly-Fumé with the Pouilly-Fuissé wine of the South of the Bourgogne (Coast Mâconnaises) and which is producted with Chardonnay.
This appelation has soils which confers on vines a good regularity of production and quality. It is translated in our wines by subtle aromas at the very beginning and which by aging give floral notes, fruity and smoked. The more vines age, the more our wines are capable of aging and so of producing special vintages.See all wines |
