Our Sancerre wines

Our white wines are made with Sauvignon blanc, and our red wines are made with Pinot noir. All of our plots are located on Bannon’s south-facing hillside. This exceptional location has different terroirs, which were farmed by the monks of Saint-Satur’s abbey. Each plot has its own unique terroir, which allows us to express various nuances through each of our cuvees. As a consequence, all of our wines are unique, that’s why you’ll find different cuvees among the estate.

Our white wines from Sancerre

Our white wines are all made with Sauvignon Blanc grapes. This variety is perfect to express the versatility of the various terroirs in Sancerre. The hillside of Bannon, a comparatively narrow area, still offers a large palette of aromas that you can taste in our four different cuvees. The clay-limestone cuvee and the flint cuvee are both typical of their own terroir while the Syllas cuvee, given in reference to our son’s middle name, is a blending of the two different terroirs previously mentioned.

Sancerre blanc

This wine is our estate’s signature cuvee, which is made with the grapes of thirty year-old vineplants (the ones we planted when we revived the estate’s activity). It’s the perfect expression of that soil composed of clay and limestone. This specific mineral combination gives this wine an ideal balance and an exceptional finesse.
 

Food and wine pairing
 

Really enjoyable for the aperitif, it can be easily paired with seafood, white fish, white meat (poultry and veal) and with the famous crottin de Chavignol (a local goat cheese).
 

This wine should be drunk preferably between 9°C and 12°C.

Syllas détouré sans millésime.png

Sancerre blanc Syllas

It’s the latest addition to our estate. This white Sancerre was aged in oak barrels for 12 months.

This wine reveals a brand new expression of the Sauvignon variety with its richness and atypical taste for a Sancerre. You can pair it with scallops or with calf sweetbread (an ultimate French delicacy). Moreover, it’s still very good enjoyed on its own for an aperitif.

Our red Sancerre

Our red wines are all made with Pinot noir. Sancerre used to be well known for its red wines, whereas now, the area is renowned for its white wines. The Pinot noir restores its former glory among the other great French red wines. We produce two different cuvees :

a typical red Sancerre and a cuvee aged in oak barrels, in tribute to Pierre Alexandre Chevalier.
