Chateau de Sancerre is one of the few chateaux, bearing the name of an appellation. Situated on the right bank of the Loire, it overlooks a unique terroir, made up of four different types of soil. Its vineyard is planted with vines that are 25 years old on average, covering a surface area of over 55 hectares. The region’s rolling limestone hills and semi-continental climate deliver richly textured Sauvignon Blanc wines with ripe gooseberry aromas, bracing acidity and flinty-smoke flavors. Chateau de Sancerre’s wine is vinified, matured and bottled on-site. “Overtake the very best”, was the motto of the Constable of Sancerre (and also that of the Counts of Champagne, of which the Counts of Sancerre were a younger branch). This formidable man of war was equally the lucky owner of this fabulous vineyard. The motto is still proudly proclaimed today.
