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. 

Grape-variety

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Age of the vines

15 to 25 years

Vinification

The grapes are quickly transported to the winery to minimize skin contact before gentle pressing into a pneumatic press. The grape juices are fermented traditionally in stainless steel tanks during 7 to 15 days.
