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.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
