The ‘Silex’ terroir produces the most sought-after Sancerre thanks to their elegance and their intense minerality. Located alongside the Loire river, it is a very ‘early-ripening’ soil. The flint stones accumulate heat from the sun during the day and radiate at night which accelerate the maturity of the grapes.

The grapes are picked very early in the season. They are delicately pressed in a pneumatic press. Prior to the fermentation, the terroir expression is maximized by an extended contact between the clear juice and the fine lees. A cold temperature fermentation ensures a slow fermentation that reveals the complexity. The aging on fine lees for 8 months refines the style and magnifies the balance.

Thanks to its great minerality, the Silex shines with delicate seafood, lobsters or cappon magro. This cuvée is a great match with your best ‘gourmet’ dishes.

Our Sancerre Siilex proudly displays the elegance and the mineral nuances of its soil. The mouthfeel texture compares to lemon sorbet sensations. The minerality is precise, intense and complemented by a hint of gooseberry and lime flavors
