Domaine Serge Laloue Sancerre Loire 2013
"This domaine was created in the early 1930's by Francois and Simone Laloue. In addition to grapes, they grew grain and tobacco and raised livestock. In 1960, their son Serge took charge of the small plots of vines and concentrated on viticulture and winemaking. Today the domaine measures 20 hectares spread over all three of Sancerre's terroirs: Terre blanche, Caillotes, and Silex. The domaine is currently being run by Serge's children, Franck, the winemaker since 1990, and Christine." -Importer
