The domaine works 22 hectares of vines that are all planted in the appellation of Sancerre.

Jean-Christophe Pouteau, Sommelier-Cellar Master: "Very nice bright and clear colour, pale yellow with pale green highligts. A lovely open nose, expressive on citrus notes : lemon, grapefruit. It's very fresh in the mouth, you can taste the citrus notes with a hint of minerality. Lovely balanced and delicate. It will be ideal to accompany seafood, grilled fish, and fresh goat cheese."
Winery: "Very nice pale yellow colour with pale green highlights. A lovely complex nose of citrus fruits, flowers and minerality. The entry is fresh and clean, then well-structured, with both roundness and liveliness. An ample wine, a beautiful aromatic power. This wine fills your mouth. Lovely length. Ideal with goat cheese (dry and young), grilled fish, poultry."
