Domaine Fouassier has been a family estate for 10 generations, covering 59 hectares, planted mainly with Sauvignon on the steep slopes around the village of Sancerre.
In the era of standardization, the estate has been avant-gardist in the vinification of their wines by lees. Refusing modern winemaking techniques, they let nature do its work for the elaboration of their wines by practicing an agriculture that respects the soil, water, living beings and natural rhythms, in order to produce lively, authentic wines that are representative of the Sancerre terroir. The whole estate is Biodyvin certified.
This Sancerre Blanc "Les Chailloux" is made from Sauvignon Blanc vines about 25 years old, planted on one of the clay- and flint soils typical of the region. All the winemaking is done naturally without any input, with fermentation using indigenous yeasts and respecting the lunar calendar.
It develops lively notes of Granny apples, lemon and a hint of anise. The palate is very lively at first, then becomes rounded while keeping a great freshness.
It will be matched with oysters or a nice, well-prepared codfish steak. Those who love freshness will even drink it alone as an aperitif, or with a small goat's cheese also produced in Sancerre.
