Tasting Notes

 

When his grandfather passed away in 1976, Régis left his studies without hesitation to take over the tiny family farm (three hectares) and over time, he has added eight more hectares to it.
 
Régis’ vineyards sit at 750 feet, surrounded by hills on the far east of the Loire River, and centered proudly on the prized limestone and clay of the Kimmeridgian chain. The scattered flint in these vineyards imbues the wines with a character quite distinctive from the village of Sancerre which lies across the Loire River.
 
Yields are intentionally kept low to concentrate flavors. Régis is a man who takes great pride in farming his land and allowing it to express its terroir to the fullest.  He uses lutte raisonée in his agriculture which translates to “reasonable methods.” in other words, sustainable farming is the standard for his 25-30 year old vines.  
 
Fermentation takes place naturally with indigenous yeasts and then the wine ages for 6 months on fine lees in stainless steel. Depending on the vintage, the lees are stirred two to three times during this time.
