Overview

Les Saulniers is a parcel of 30-year-old-vines situated midslope on a hill crowned by forest southwest of the village of Saint-Père. Curving around the west-facing edge of the hill, the vines of Les Saulniers face northwest, west, and southwest, giving the wines from here precision and clarity that is remarkable for such a young appellation. Alexandre feels that this site is so unique that it will eventually be recognized as a 1er cru.
