This Cuvée is elaborated from Sauvignon Blanc vines planted on 10-hectare plot called Le Rochoy, lying hillside on flinty soils and recently converted to Organic farming. A highly mineral and complex wine with a lot of different aromas of ripe fruit. One of the most elegant and pure Sancerre we came across, so definitely worth its price!

|What experts say|
16.5/20 "Tank sample. Slightly cloudy. Spicy pear aroma and creamy spice on the palate. Defined and precise but rather linear, for the moment at least, but give it a few months in bottle for it to settle down. Long, sour-fresh finish. (JH)" (previous vintage)
91/100 "Very steely, with a strong flinty edge that runs throughout, harnessing the core of peach, thyme and wet straw flavors. Piercing finish. Drink now through 2020." (previous vintage)
94/100 Editors' Choice "From a sloping flinty vineyard, this is an impressive wine. It is powered by its tight tense texture to give a concentrated essence of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine, with its green and citrus fruits, is tangy, steely and needing to age. Drink from 2019."
