Winemaker Notes

This Sancerre is an enchanting pale gold yellow with green hints. Concentrated aromas of exotic fruits, grapefruit, passion fruit, mango and blood orange tempt the senses before unfolding to a structured, mineral-driven palate with a graphite finish that evokes the flint terroir of St. Gemme. Notes of orange zest linger on the beautifully balanced finish that leaves a saline impression.

Wine Spectator
This has great zip, with a crackling edge to the mix of mache, honeysuckle, gooseberry and lemon pith flavors. Offers a long, zingy finish.

Le Roi des Pierres, Sancerre, Loire, France
Le Roi des Pierres, meaning "King of Stones," pays homage both to the Loire Valley's decorated royal past and its unique terroir, particularly silex’s designation as “the king of all stones.” Sancerre's wines, perhaps more than anywhere else in the world, represent a sense of place, reflecting the land and the history, easily transporting one to the hilltops of this spectacular appellation.

The Loire Valley is the historical heart of France, renowned for its beautiful countryside, breathtaking chateaux and legendary wine. From the 10th century onwards, kings and queens have called it their home, promoting intellectual and cultural advancements. Over the years the wines of Sancerre were considered to be the finest in the entire kingdom. There are three soil types found in Sancerre, terres blanches, which are clay and limestone soils rich in shellfish fossils, caillottes, pebbly limestone soils, and finally silex. Each soil type plays a significant role in the character of a wine's flavor.
