A family run domaine who predominantly grow Sauvignon Blanc in and around the area of Chaudoux-Verdigny in Sancerre. The use of old vines points to a better quality of wine as the vine shows reduced vigour and therefore smaller more concentrated yields. This wine exhibits classic passionfruit and mineral characters coupled with a racy acidity giving excellent balance and structure.
Domaine Paul Cherrier
Along with the Vacheron brothers and Stéphane Riffault, Stéphane Cherrier from Domaine Paul Cherrier is another great talent of the Sancerrois. The 13 hectares Domaine is located in the tiny village of Verdigny, just northwest of the town of Sancerre. Its hilltop parcels are planted on rocky Kimmeridgian limestone, which gives powerful and persistently mineral wines of great purity and expression.
