Gerard Fiou started with just 5 hectares in the beautiful village of Saint-Satur in the Central Vineyards of the Loire Valley. Today he has 34 hectares and the domaine is the only estate in Sancerre with equal parts limestone and flint in the vineyard which contributes to the pure and fresh texture of this particular Sancerre. Such is the reputation of the domaine that it is now mentioned in the same breath as Cloudy Bay. This is 100% Sauvignon Blanc and is the perfect partner to fish and seafood.
A clear lemon-gold in hue. Very full and expressive on the nose, with notes of grapefruit and greengage, full and plump rather than lean. The palate reveals this to be Sauvignon in the creamy style, but with attractive acidity and a crisp, racy finish.
90/100 Wine Enthusiast (2019 Vintage)
"This is a soft wine filled with white-fruit flavours. Just underneath, it has a tighter character that comes from the flint soil of the vineyard. Balanced with fruit and texture, the wine is perfumed, ripe and ready to drink."
