Clément and Florian Berthier are among the Loire's most talented young winemakers, making superb Pinot Noirs such as this Sancerre Rouge, with vibrant, stewed red fruits and a whisper of pepper.

Jean-Marie Berthier, a highly skilled wine producer from Loire valley, created this estate in the early 1980’s. Today, his two sons Clément and Florian have taken over the domaine to produce a distinctive range of wines, covering a variety of styles and Loire appellations as the estate has expanded.  Having previously worked in Burgundy, New Zealand and the USA, Clément and Florian brought a modern approach; looking to produce clean, precise wines which display a distinct sense of their origins, including some of the finest red wines of the Centre-Loire.

Sancerre is known for its white wine production but as the climate changes it has displayed its capacity for  outstanding Pinot Noir. The vines for this wine are planted in Sainte Gemme village on Burgundian clay-limestone soil.

A warm fermantation between 26 and 32°C. during which the must is pumped over twice a day to maximize the extraction of colour and tannins. The wine is then racked and aged for 10 months before bottling.
