Chateau de Sancerre

At the heart of the Loire’s terroirs

Chateau de Sancerre is one of the rare French wine estates bearing the name of an appellation. Situated on the left bank of the Loire and overlooking a unique terroir of 4 different soils, its 55-hectare vineyard is planted with vines, representing an average age of 25 years. The region’s rolling hills and semi-continental climate produce lively and crisp Sauvignon Blanc wines boasting good structure, and evoking well-ripened gooseberry aromas and smoky, flinty notes. The wines of Chateau de Sancerre are made, matured and bottled in-house. The art of blending meets high standards in keeping with the Constable of Sancerre’s motto: “Advance before the best”.
