Vineyard and Winery
The Sancerre white vines are planted on the soils of Sainte Gemme and Sury-en-Vaux, small villages located in the heart of the Centre-Loire area. This white Sancerre is produced from 50% silex soil and 50% limestone soil but of course, 100% Sauvignon Blanc. These different “terroirs” help provide complexity to the wine.
For many years now, a sensibility for nature, innate in each generation of the Berthier family, has been naturally directing them toward organic growing, for which they obtnained certification in 2022.
As soon as they arrive in the winery, the harvested grapes are delicately pressed and the juice obtained is allowed to settle for around 36 hours. The alcoholic fermentation starts naturally at a controlled temperature (15-18°C).
The wine is then matured for a few months on its fine lees until the bottling is carried out in the spring.
