Winemaker in Verdigny, in the heart of the Sancerre appellation since 1926.

Terres Blanches is a ‘late-ripening’ terroir made of thick clay layers entertwined with flat, white limestone stones. This terroir is rich in fossils and white stones that have the particularity of whitening while drying in the sun. The Terres Blanches terroir gives a strong aromatic concentration, tension and ageing potential to the wines.

This terroir is harvested late in the season, its unique clay concentration results in a slower ripening of the berries. The grapes are delicately pressed in a pneumatic press. Prior to the fermentation, the terroir expression is maximized by an extended contact between the clear juice and the fine lees. A cold temperature fermentation ensures a slow fermentation that reveals the complexity. The ageing on fine lees for 8 months refines the style and enhance the balance.
