Winemaker Notes

Domaine Fournier Sancerre “Les Belles Vignes” has a wonderful aromafull of fruit and minerality with hints of Fleur de Sel, chive and flint.The palate is chiseled yet elegant. Truly a classic Sancerre.

A perfect pairing with seafood or any salad.

Exotic aromas of mango, papaya and lime with fresh thyme and other herbs. Medium body. Crisp acidity. Serious Sancere here.

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

Marked by its charming hilltop village in the easternmost territory of the Loire, Sancerre is famous for its racy, vivacious, citrus-dominant Sauvignon blanc. Its enormous popularity in 1970s French bistros led to its success as the go-to restaurant white around the globe in the 1980s.

While the region claims a continental climate, noted for short, hot summers and long, cold winters, variations in topography—rolling hills and steep slopes from about 600 to 1,300 feet in elevation—with great soil variations, contribute the variations in character in Sancerre Sauvignon blancs.

In the western part of the appellation, clay and limestone soils with Kimmeridgean marne, especially in Chavignol, produce powerful wines. Moving closer to the actual town of Sancerre, soils are gravel and limestone, producing especially delicate wines. Flint (silex) soils close to the village produce particularly perfumed and age-worthy wines.

About ten percent of the wines claiming the Sancerre appellation name are fresh and light red wines made from Pinot noir and to a lesser extent, rosés. While not typically exported in large amounts, they are well-made and attract a loyal French following.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
