Single-Vineyard cuvée

Sancerre – Roc de l’Abbaye

Our Single-Vineyard cuvée

Just like a fine Burgundy, the south-facing Roc de l’Abbaye parcel lies in the middle of the hillside and overlooks the Domaine’s vinification. This parcel selection wine offers a graceful reflection of the balance and tension of wines grown in flint soils.

This wine is available in France from 40,50 € at your preferred wine shop, or at our online shop Aux Trésors de Bacchus

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Age of the vines

~ 45 years old


Pink, black and grey flint


This wine is made from hand harvested grapes grown in the iconic Clos du Roc parcel in the heart of the village of Saint-Satur. Its 100% flint terroir imparts complexity and minerality to the fruit and enables it to ripen gradually. I perfect this already mythical wine with cold stabulation for 8 days prior to fermentation at 18°C.

This shows pretty intensity with sliced lime and green-apple character. Vibrant acidity and intensity. It's pretty textbook in character. Drink now.

Grapefruit zest, lime, nettles and fresh herbs on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with tangy acidity and fresh, bright character. Hints of white pepper marry the green-citrus notes. Drink now.

Some green mango, sliced apple, guava and green berries on the nose. Quite austere and dry with razor-sharp acidity. Pure and tangy, though a little demanding. Drink now.

2021 is a cooler vintage than 2020 which required more regular stirring of the fine lees. The wine develops more varietal aromas and freshness. The golden yellow colour is intensely brilliant. The nose develops a perfume of white flowers mixed with citrus notes. The mouth is tasty, fresh and supported by a persistent minerality.
