Village Cuvées

Our Villages range is inspired by the Burgundian philosophy. Each Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé Villages (communes) express various styles that are well known to the local winemakers.

Discover these unique Village styles thru our carefully curated selection stemming from both appellations.

This tasteful journey throughout our different Villages will allow you to understand the terroirs nuances that you didn’t know before!

WINEMAKING & AGEING

Our Villages cuvées are our rendering of each village style. The vineyards are selected at harvest according to their type of soils and their grape flavors. Each vineyard benefits from the best suited growing techniques for their terroir. The juices ferment at low temperatures in small tanks to favor all the Village nuances. Each tank is aged on fine lees for 6-8 months prior to bottling.

FOOD PAIRING

The Chaudouillonne is a great match for your homemade appetizers as well as all your most subtle dishes. The generous style and elegance of this cuvée is a real treat.

92 points / A very beautiful white, showing dried lemon and mango with some flint and stone undertones. It’s full-bodied, layered and flavorful. Like the complexity from the age. Drink now.

92 points / As it approaches maturity, this rich wine has developed good balance between tangy, herbal acidity and a broadening of the mineral texture. It is becoming a ripe wine, ready to drink from late 2020.

2019 2016

90 points / This is an extra-rich wine, concentrated with ripe fruits. It is still young with no holds barred in its power and intensity. With its dense texture and upfront fruit, it needs to age. Drink from 2020.

2019 2016

91 points / Lime, chive and flint notes give this a racy, detailed feel, with mouthwatering zip on the finish. A textbook rapier Sancerre. Drink now through 2021

2018 2016

93 points / A rich, intense wine, this offers dense citrus flavors and taut, tense acidity. It is just becoming ready to drink, very perfumed, full of fruit and seriously textured. Drink now.

2016 2013

92 points / Fournier’s top Sancerre wine is released with just that extra bit of maturity, giving it extra depth and richness, and turning the initial fruitiness into something more serious. At three years old, the wine is ripe, still with plenty of fruit while also developing a smoky, flinty character. Drink now.
