Sancerre – Roc de l’AbbayeOur Single-Vineyard cuvée
Located in the middle of a south facing hill slope, just like a Grand Cru in Burgundy, this unique parcel overlooks the winery and the tasting room. Florian’s monopole wine ‘Roc de l’Abbaye’ shows layered flavours with a perfect balance and it offers this unique tension defining the great Silex (flint) terroir. The palate is profound and fresh, supported by a long lasting minerality.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Age of the vines

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.
Color: Or reflets verts
Nose: Un nez délicat aux agrumes infusés, de belles notes de minéralités.
