The vineyard has an unusual terroir because its subsoil is composed of a volcanic rock: gabbro, covered with a layer of clay 40cm. The particularity of this soil gives these wines a minerality and a characteristic lemony note. This cuvee comes in three different labels: two of each in a case of 6, which symbolise terroir, wine and man.

Nicolas Millerioux, Sancerre, Tradition
100% Sauvignon Blanc
“Nicolas has crafted an eye-catching Sancerre of wonderful purity, vibrancy and authenticity. Tightly wound, precisely etched citrus fruits vie for attention with a delicate hint of nectarine and white peach. A telling minerality adds to the sense of vitality, keeping the palate energised and refreshed.”
