Our vineyard, spread across the villages of Bué, Sancerre, Crézancy and Montigny, sits on a geological foundation dating from the Jurassic formation, in the secondary era.
80% is planted with Sauvignon, producing our white wines, and 20% is Pinot Noir for our red and rosé wines.
Limestone soils (small pebbles), hard and very stony, give fruity and delicate white wines. The «Terres blanches » (Kimmeridgian marl) more or less clayey, add structure and body.
A soil with more clay and marl is perfect for Pinot Noir in the making of our red and rosé wines.
We work on the famous slopes of Chêne Marchand, Grand Chemarin and Chasseignes.
Today 70% of our vineyard are grass-covered, in order to limit erosion. A deep cultivation of the soil is carried out under the rows of our grass covered vineyards, and also on the entire surface of the rows in the other part of our vineyards.
For health protection and for our vineyard management, we take into account the need to approach an environmentally friendly viticulture.
The protection of our environment, the safety and health of our employees are integrated in all the processes of organization and operation.
Being more responsible and efficient and adopting a sustainable development approach, our domaine is committed to limiting its impact on the environment, disposing of all waste in the most appropriate manner, controlling the choice and the use of phytosanitary products and fertilizers.
