All wines stored at 55° and 70% humidity
The petite village of Sury-en-Vaux, north of the legendary Sancerre vineyard ‘Monts Damnés,’ is where you’ll find this extraordinary source of character-rich wines from the Loire Valley. The family Pastou maintains excellent flint-rich vineyards in Sancerre as well as a superb perch in Pouilly-sur-Loire for their expressive Pouilly-Fumé. The theme that runs through all the domaine’s wines is freshness: here, you can’t be but
floored by the energy of native grapes from these remarkable terroirs.
Estate vineyards surround the town of Sury-en-Vaux, north of Chavignol, in the Sancerre appellation. Soils are called “terres blanches,” a mineral mix of chalk and clay, with some pockets of flint. Hand-harvested. Fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks on fine lees. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
