Tasting Notes

This old vines selection naturally brings more structure than the classic Sancerre. This wine will need more time to develop but will bring that extra dimension and certainly will match oily fish cooked in rich sauce or strong flavoured cheeses.

In Sury-en-Vaux, a little village near Sancerre, the 'big chief' (according to his wife Karine), Christian Lauverjat produces quality Sancerre wines year after year.
