Domaine Georges Millérioux comprises 17 hectares of vines near the hamlet of Amigny (2 miles from Sancerre) cultivated on clay-limestone soils, fragmented in different parts of the appellation. Since 2008, Nicolas, the son, is back working amongst the vines on the family landholdings. His attentive eye and steady hands tend and care for the vines whilst his iPhone never far away!
This big giant of a man nevertheless fashions truly elegant fine wines. His Sancerre Blanc ‘Tradition’ exhibits the true characteristics and purity of the appellation with notes of boxwood, lemon and hints of fresh almonds on the nose. The palate is fresh, crisp and with good acidity to lift and enhance the zesty fruit and freshness. His Reserve Pinot Noir aged 6 months in oak, offers red berry fruits, a touch of cocoa powder, freshness and a subtly spicy finale. Produced by a very young wine maker, these are high quality examples of Sancerre.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Les Romains is a flint terroir located in the eastern part of Sancerre. Here the soils have a strong resemblance to the terroir across the Loire river in Pouilly-Fume. There is a definite smoky and flinty quality to the wine that is backed with a piquant and delicate citrus fruitiness reminiscent of grapefruit.
