This domaine has been in the family for 10 generations. It now covers 59 hectares of vineyards planted primarily with the Sauvignon varietal.  Fouassier vinifies their wines separately according to their lieu-dits (individual parcels). They are committed to using growing methods that respect the soils, water, life forms and natural rhythms in the vineyards in order to produce authentic, living wines. The entire domaine is managed in accordance with the principles of Biodynamic Agriculture. The Biodynamic approach and the lunar calendar dictate the work in both the vineyards and the winery.

Tasting Notes

The nose draws you in with a layered bouquet of ripe pear, white flowers and honey. The same flavours concentrate on the palate.  There is a lovely tension here of stone fruit and racy citrus notes  and a chalky minerality.  This wine shows all the concentration and length you would expect to find in a premium Sancerre.  Enjoy with oysters, shellfish, seafood pasta dishes.   

Method

Biodynamic Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown on an ideally exposed south facing slope of Kimmeridgien limestone.  The vines are on average 50 years old and the yields are low.  The wine is fermented using indigenous yeasts.
