The Boulay family has been in Sancerre since 1380, Gerard the current generation of family adds no yeast and little to no SO2 during vinfication. He describes his role as one of “surveillance” to make sure nothing goes wrong. In general he works by instinct, “au feeling” because he wants to “let the wine live” and tries not to interfere with the natural process. Blend of young vine parcels on kimmeridgian slopes in the village of Chavignol.
This wine brings together the best of Boulay’s young vine vineyards in the small village of Chavignol. They are planted in the kimmeridgian soils that make the appellation’s wines so notable, with bracing minerality and citrus high tones.
