Daniel and his son Simon are no slouches themselves when it comes to producing fine, Sancerrois Pinot Noir. Daniel used to age this special cuvée from their oldest and best Pinot vines in used Hospices de Beaune barrels. Simon has expanded the repertoire to include larger demi-muids and foudres, improving its delicacy of expression. For those in need of expanded Pinot Noir address books as Burgundy continues to be buffeted by innumerable pressures, our growers in Sancerre with their world-class soils and savoir faire deserve your attention.
|Vineyard:||50 years average, .6 ha|
|Soil:||Clay, Limestone, Kimmeridgian marl|

Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
