Domaine des Vieux Pruniers Sancerre Blanc is a remarkable expression of the renowned Loire Valley region in France. Made exclusively from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes, this wine showcases the exceptional terroir of the Sancerre appellation. The vineyards, located in the prized village of Bué, boast clay and crushed chalk soils over chalky limestone bedrock, contributing to the wine's distinct character.
Crafted with a commitment to organic conversion, the grapes are hand-harvested and undergo a slow, gentle pressing process. Indigenous yeasts initiate fermentation, which takes place in stainless steel tanks. This meticulous approach ensures the preservation of the wine's natural flavors and aromas. After fermentation, the wine is aged on the fine lees for several months, adding depth and complexity to the final product.
