Year after year this is one of our favorite Sancerres. Gerard Boulay farms 11 hectares on steep, south facing slopes in the commune of Chavignol (in Sancerre.) The average vine age is over 50 years, and the vines are planted on Kimmeridgian limestone. This is the remains of an ancient seabed and rich in fossilized sea animals – giving the wines an inherent minerality. The domaine traces its roots back to the 14th century Gerard farms organically and does all vineyard work by hand. His Chavignol is a steal at $34, and his Monts Damnes is a befitting interpretation of this famed site. Stop by or email [email protected] to reserve yours.
