As for the production of Sancerre, it is located for 20% on terroirs similar to those of Morogues, which gives roundness to the wine. Length and minerality are provided by a flint soil (20%) which is added to 60% of soft limestone called "caillotes".

The fruit of our labour
La Haute valeur environnementale (HVE) garantit que les pratiques agricoles utilisées sur l'ensemble d'une exploitation préservent l'écosystème naturel et réduisent au minimum la pression sur l'environnement (sol, eau, biodiversité...).
White : Sauvignon grape
Red and Rosé : Pinot noir grape
Our wine reveals the greatest expressions of Sauvignon thanks to the Sancerrois terroir.
It is a blend of limestone called "caillote" which gives it its freshness and fruitiness, and flint which gives it its power and its minerality. This wine will go perfectly as an aperitif, with seafood, fish and marries nicely even with certain cheeses, such as Crottin de Chavignol.
This wine is a blend of 50% limestone called "caillote" and 50% flint. Love of the terroir, rigorous work in the vines and manual harvesting allow the winegrower to select the berries at full maturity and hence bring out the best in them.
Precise vinification is then carried out in the cellar with one-year aging in vats and barrels (50 to 80% wood).
This red Sancerre will flourish with grilled meats, poultry, and local charcuterie as well as with good regional cheeses.
Young winegrower, Anthony Girard planted the first vines in the Spring of 2010. Located in the town of Morogues, the "Kimmeridgien" soils called Terres Blanches (clay-limestone) are typical of Menetou-Salon.
This white wine is very popular as an aperitif and also goes well with your hot starters and fish served with sauce.
This wine, of a soft pale pink color, presents a fruity bouquet with notes of grapefruit and red fruits.
The blend of two terroirs (limestone and flint) brings complexity and balance to this rosé.
Ideal as an aperitif or with summer dishes, you will be seduced by its tender and fresh palate.
