Single-Vineyard cuvée

Sancerre – Roc de l’Abbaye

Our 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.
