Appellations Cuvées

Blessed with vineyards spanning in 8 communes of the appel- lation, over the years our cuvée ‘Les Belles Vignes’ has become a benchmark in Sancerre. Nested in the heart of the Verdigny village, Domaine Fournier Père et Fils, actively promotes the Sancerre wines worldwide.

Sancerre is the most prestigious and renowned appellation of the Loire. Early texts dating from the Middle Ages already mention the Sancerre vineyard. Nowadays, the appellation covers 2900 hectares located on the Loire left bank, on the Eastern side of city of Bourges.

The hills are often very steep, vineyards benefit from many microclimates thanks to the highly variable expositions. Known as the international capital of Sauvignon Blanc, its inimitable style is born from the magic al- liance of these varietals and the 3 unique soils of the appellation: Silex, Caillottes and Terres Blanches.

WINEMAKING & AGEING

Planted on numerous steep hills with varying sun exposures, our vineyard requires a great deal of attention to get its essence. At harvest time, the daily tasting of the berries in each vineyard enables us to precisely choose the ideal picking date. The grapes are cold-macerated in whole bunches for a week before the alcoholic fermentation starts. The Pinot Noir thrives in Menetou Salon!

FOOD PAIRING

A refined balance of minerality and varietal flavors, our Côtes Morogues will compliment your veal cutlet with eggplant, chicken tagines or cheeses such as livarot or mimolette.
