Tight and dusty on the nose with a fairly floral character and only light suggestions of weedy red fruit. Light and fresh on the palate, this is relatively small-scaled but nicely textured with integrated acidity that keeps this fresh yet supple. The fruit shows notes of apple fruit with a wash of cherry and perhaps a suggestion of almond on the moderately long finish. A wine of contradictions, I’d like a little more intensity here, but I could probably drink a bottle without realizing it. 87pts

The domaine is composed of 17 hectares in AOC Sancerre; with vines aged between 10 and 80 years. The vineyards are on clay and limestone soils as well as Silex, which allow a good drainage. In order to respect the environment and to allow the better expression of the terroir, the vineyards are cultivated using 'lutte raisonne', using as few chemicals as possible and working with the nature.

The chapel itself is built on the site of a Gallo-Roman temple and springs (vestiges of which are preserved at the Museum of Bourges). These well-ventilated cellars, with ideal natural hygrometry, maintain a year around constant temperature that is perfect for the maturation and conservation of wine. Vintage: 2009 Grapes: ...
