Antique Sancerre White‘Antique’ cuvées
Our cuvée L’Antique comes from our oldest vines ‘Vieilles Vignes’ grown in the ‘Les Beltins’ parcel, in the village of Ménétréol-sous-Sancerre. Harvested by hand and vinified in the 228 liters Burgundy barrels ‘pièces’ made from the oak of Tronçais forest, L’Antique is a concentrated wine characterized by its velvety mouthfeel and lemony fruit note accompanied by a refreshing and inviting acidity.

Lovely purity here, with flint, golden berries, white asparagus and wet stones on the nose. This is quite bright and tangy, with tempting minerals and guava on the palate. Limey and textured. Delicious now.
Aromas of lemon zest, green apple, fennel and fresh basil. It’s medium-bodied with tangy acidity and a juicy, fresh finish. Some tension and texture. Drink now.
