    Winemaker's Notes

    This is an amazing, delicious and unique wine from the Loire valley - one of the best deals you'll ever find in Pinot Noir. Made from 100% Pinot Noir from 20-25 year-old vines, it is a full ruby color with a hint of garnet-red. On the nose, aromas of morello-cherries on brandy; leathery and smoky impressions. Fresh and delicious in the mouth, with evidence of tannin. This wine will round out will a little bit of age - but is so fresh and vibrant right now that it's hard to resist.

    Absolutely magnificent Sancerre, Pouilly Fume and Menetou Salon have been produced by several generations of the Fournier dynasty. Their vineyards, set in the beautiful Loire Valley, Sancerre region near the small village of Verdigny, have grown from a mere 2 hectares in 1950 to some 45 hectares today. This despite the slender opportunities for growth in the Sancerre region.

    Divided over the appellations of Menetou Salon, Pouilly Fume and Sancerre they have kept fully abreast of improving vinification techniques and their fabulous and diverse wines are well-balanced and of the highest quality. Always attracting plaudits and winning medals, the family are rightly very proud of their success.
