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

Planté sur de multiples collines pentues avec des expositions très variées, notre vignoble nécessite la plus grande attention afin d’en saisir la quintessence. La dégustation quotidienne des parcelles guide la date des vendanges. La vinification en cuve thermorégulées est suivie par un élevage sur lies fines avec batonnage hebdomadaire pendant 6 mois, afin de ‘nourrir’ la complexité et la tension de la cuvée.

FOOD PAIRING
