Sancerre White

‘Tradition’ cuvées

The Sancerre wine region stretches across magnificent hillsides that offer optimal growing conditions for the vine. The climatic conditions and diversity of its terroirs enable the Sauvignon Blanc varietal to ripen very slowly and therefore reach its full potential and expression.

This wine is available in France from 21,30 € at your preferred wine shop, or at our online shop Aux Trésors de Bacchus

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Age of the vines

~30 years old


90% Flint, 10 % Terres Blanches


Prior to harvest I visit each of my parcels in order to taste the fruit and carefully select the grapes before they are pressed at cold temperatures here at the domaine. Cold stabulation for 8 days followed by fermentation at controlled temperatures of 16-18°C enhances the fresh and chiseled character of this Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting notes


Golden hue with green glimmers.


The subtle nose opens up with notes of citrus fruits, wild flowers and citrus blossom which give way to lime, lemongrass, bergamot and pineapple.


The palate is rich, velvety and underpinned a delicate freshness. Notes of bergamot, grapefruit zest and green apple. A remarkably well balanced wine with a saline finish.

Serving temperature

10 - 12 °C.

Food Pairings

Goats cheese, comté, seafood, herb risotto or fish tartare.

'With fresh waves of grapefruit juice and lime zest washing over the tongue, this invigorating wine would be great with crudités or raw seafood to cleanse the palate and leave a granitic minerality to ground the finish.'

'Shows a limpid hue with glittering emerald streaks and aromas of kiwi fruit flesh, white peach skin, white pepper, ruby grapefruit, sugar snap pea, and wild basil. The palate has an enticing stony quality filled out with mineral and citrus character.'
