Antique Sancerre White‘Antique’ cuvées
Our cuvée L’Antique comes from our oldest vines ‘Vieilles Vignes’ grown in the ‘Les Beltins’ parcel, in the village of Ménétréol-sous-Sancerre. Harvested by hand and vinified in the 228 liters Burgundy barrels ‘pièces’ made from the oak of Tronçais forest, L’Antique is a concentrated wine characterized by its velvety mouthfeel and lemony fruit note accompanied by a refreshing and inviting acidity.
