About the Producer
A small family domaine in the east of the Sancerre appellation
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.
Only a small percentage of terroir in Sancerre is made up of this soil type, which is much more common in neighboring Pouilly-Fume.This, combined with unusually old vines, means memorable Sancerre with deep minerality.
Wine & Food Matching Ideas
Roast herbed chicken
Sole with chanterelle mushrooms in a garlic cream
Try it with
Seafood gratin with caramelised apples
This slightly richer style of Sancerre goes well with a wider variety of foods. It's still crisp and dry, but has a little more oomph and therefore pairs nicely with more hearty dishes as we go into Autumn. This flavourful take on a fisherman's pie is a great match.
