Family owned – small production – fascinating range of terroirs
Pierre Martin is acknowledged as one of the best wine tasters in the business – and in our eyes he is a pretty good winemaker too!
In 2004, Pierre took over the 11.5 hectare estate from his father, who still acts as a consultant during the winemaking process.
Their land covers two of the key Sancerre terroirs, the chalk earth of ‘Chavignol’ and the limestone/clay dominated soil of ‘Terres Blanches’ – hence the beautiful mineral quality possessed by Pierre’s wines.
Quintessential Sauvignon Blanc, cut grass, gooseberries and blackcurrant leaves.
