Chateau de Sancerre white wine is made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes and draws its quintennsence from the unique terroir. This wine is the ONLY Sancerre allowed to bear the name "Chateau de Sancerre".
The vines are planted in communes within the Sancerre appellation. The terroirs are composed of diverse soil types: clay-limestone (30% terres blanches), limestone (30% caillottes), flint (25%) and sandy clay (15%). Grass is grown between the rows of vines to limit erosion and preserve the environment.
The grapes are harvested terroir by terroir when they reach their peak of ripeness. The grape juice is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks after which the wine is aged on fine lees for a minimum of 6 months. The wines from each terroir are then blended harmoniously to yield a unique and complex wine.
