With their vines planted on the steep hard-calcaire amphitheatre of vineyards that surround the commune of Bué, three kilometres from Sancerre, Gérard and Pierre make rich, aromatic Sancerres and some particularly deep reds. Yields are held low through a spring de-budding (one of Pierre’s main changes) and harvesting is by hand.
Morin’s Sancerre is typical of Bué: firmly structured and richly aromatic, it is generous and fruity in character, with a fine tangy blackcurrant leaf character.
The 2015 Sancerre Vieilles Vignes is a selection of old vines in the communes of Sancerre and Bué, and combines the characteristics of the limestone terroir (Les Caillottes) with the clay terroir (Terres Blanches). This results is an elegant and aromatic bouquet and a full-bodied, salty-mineral and refreshing palate, with grip and a salty finish.
