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.

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...

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.

Perfect as an aperitif wine to have at all...

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...
