Product Description:

"The Picard family has been making wines in Sancerre since the 1600s. Today they produce 8,350 cases between the two cuvées of white wines, the red and the rose. The wines produced by this small, 14 hectare domaine (spread over 45 different parcels) are proof that not all Sancerres are created equal. As Sancerre is a large appellation, the best villages have developed their own reputation for quality, with Bué considered one of the finest. The vineyard slopes surrounding this hamlet have outstanding clay-limestone soils, sunny southwestern exposures and ideal elevations which Picard farms sustainably (culture raisonnée). Picard always harvests his grapes manually (90% of the producers in Sancerre harvest mechanically) and he makes his fine Sancerre Blanc from the very select Grand Chemarin and Chene Marchand vineyards. Superb terroir and limited production translate into very generous and gratifying wines. Farming/winemaking practices: sustainable. Grass is allowed to partially grow in the vineyards. The wines are vegan - the whites and rosés are fined with bentonite while the reds are unfined." Producer
