Winemaker and vineyard: This Sancerre vineyard is owned by the Prieur family. Pierre Prieur grows Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir on 17 ha. The wines are typical of Sancerre: diverse and with a high terroir expression, as the vineyards are situated on all three different typical subsoils, on "Terres Blanches" (clay-limestone mixture), "Caillottes" (limestone) and "Silex" (flint).
Tasting: The nose starts with aromas of ripe yellow fruits, light grapefruit notes add some freshness. In the mouth very rich with a lot of matter, fresh and nicely mineral in the finish.
