Overview

While looking for another producer in Sancerre a few years back one name was immediately mentioned both at Domaine Vacheron and Domaine Claude Riffault and that was Stéphane Cherrier. Stéphane still sells off most of his production to larger properties and reserves the best material for his entry level Sancerre. The fruit comes from vineyard in the village of Verdigny on soils with varying limestone content thereby combining both rich fruit and a linear minerality. This energetic Sancerre is fermented and aged entirely in tank.
