Dry, crispy and fruity, this is exactly what we expect from a white Sancerre, the most famous wine from the Loire Valley. It is light to medium-bodied, the aromas of citrus and grass are excellent and intense, with the typical freshness of the Sauvignon Blanc in the mouth. Nothing to heavy, just a delicious white that would be absolutely perfect for a sushi night or a seafood platter!

|What experts says|
1* "This Sancerre is a lovely expression of the Sauvignon Blanc. It boasts nice aromas of blackcurrant bud and fruit in syrup, which are also present in the full and fresh mouth. Some character and style!" (Previous vintage)
|Gold Medal at International Wine Challenge "Stylish, delicious and promising young wine with aromas evoking a freshly mown lawn on a summer morning. Expressive citrus, green herb and black currant leaf flavours linger sumptuously." (Previous vintage)|
|Commended at Decanter World Wine Awards "Classic profile of citrus, grass and gooseberry. Seamless and fresh with wonderful fruit intensity." (Previous vintage)|
|87/100 "The wine is soft, a gentle meander through the flavors of Sauvignon Blanc without any shocks. It has an attractive, rounded texture, with shots of acidity that complement the apple skin and pear flavors. Drink now." (Previous vintage)|
Aujourd’hui Comme Autrefois (Litterally, today as in the past) is the medium-range Sancerre of the domain. It is elaborated with the most traditional techniques - no filtration, ageing on lees... A truly authentic Sancerre, coming from old vines in the finest hillsides of Chavignol. Given its late bottling, it will stay fresh and young for an extended...
"Le Cul de Beaujeu" is a famous super-hilly vineyard in Sancerre. Given the steepness, everything is done by hand with a great care, which contributes to the exceptional quality of this wine. The nose is delicate with elegant aromas of white flower, quince and yellow fruit. The palate shows notes of exotic fruit with a hint of citrus, bringing just enough...
A typical and elegant Pouilly-Fumé! It exhibits fine notes of "fumé" (stony aromas), with hints of lemon, hazelnut and honey. On the palate, it is a light-bodied and refreshing white with a slight peppery finish. A truly amazing example of Pouilly-Fumé, we just loved it. Any amateur of this appellation will be thrilled with it.
This lovely cuvée is elaborated by the 3 daughters of Hubert Brochard - CARoline, ISAbelle and ANNE-Sophie - on a 5 hectare vineyard near Sancerre. It shows a typical nose of Sauvignon Blanc (citrus, peach) and is light-bodied on the palate. A simple and refreshing wine, nothing complicated but really well-made. Perfect as an aperitif wine to have at all...
Partly aged in oak barrels, this red Sancerre is a round and fresh Pinot Noir, which clearly does not suffer the comparison from a classic Pinot Noir from Burgundy. It does have a fine structure with subtle tannins and slight oaky notes. Surprisingly complex for a red Sancerre, it is really worth a try.
This "Cuvée Vieilles Vignes" - old vines - is definitely a very high-end Pouilly-Fumé. Aged in large oak barrels (quite unusual for this appellation), it shows an unusual roundness with toasted and buttery flavours. Very supple on the palate with beautiful and elegant aromas of white peach and citrus. This is a very complex Pouilly-Fumé, one of the most...
