Another late year with numerous climatic hazards, but the harvest was quickly brought in before big rain. A very different year which should bring of pleasant surprises!
Le Manoir de l'étang
Plot of land from which arises the wine ' The Manoir', with once again golden grapes, a good maturity (12°C nature) for this vintage intended for a slow wine making in oak barrel. A small yield of 35hl for this vine of more than 20 years.
Plot of land of 2ha30 of flinty soil from which arises the vine 'Tradition', which produced too beautiful grapes, a fruity juice which predicts a wine for the true aromas of sauvignon with touches minerality, typical of this cuvée.
A small plot of land of pinot noir situated under the walls, will produce a Sancerre wine with aromas of red berries very pleasant which will produce our Sancerre Rosé.
The manual picking allows us a first sorting of the grape in the cutting. Using 80 liter boxes and not truck participates in the quality of the wine. The grape arrives whole to the press, without triturage, what avoids the oxidation. The carpet which allows a second sorting, there is not a passage in a pump or a screw. It is the guarantee of a respect for the aromas and a quality security.
Thanks to vintagers' team!
