Chêne Marchand


Sancerre white

Grape variety

Sauvignon blanc


0.70 hectares


This wine comes from a parcel selection of 0.70 hectares of vines, planted on one of the finest caillottes terroirs in the Sancerrois: "Le Chêne Marchand".


After being hand-picked and carefully sorted, the grapes are taken to the pneumatic press and loaded whole. Cold settling precedes indigenous fermentation and ageing for 12 months in 228 and 500-litre oak barrels. To avoid altering the Sauvignon aromas by using too many new barrels, we use a variable percentage of "one wine barrels" depending on the vintage, so that this cuvée is the free expression of a terroir.


"A very beautiful, brilliant light yellow colour with pale green highlights.
A lovely, complex, delicate nose, with citrus fruit, floral notes (lilac, honeysuckle) and a hint of oak.
A lovely freshness on the palate followed by a very fine aromatic intensity. A wine with great substance and presence. A very fine structure in which the wood ageing adds additional toasty and brioche notes, but these do not dominate and are fully integrated with the typical aromas of the terroir. A very fine finish.
Don't hesitate to decant it to bring out all its aromas.
