Description

Situated in Bué in the Sancerre region of the Loire Valley, the Millet family has been making wine for over six generations. Gérard and Isabelle have now been joined by their son Steve. The estate covers a total of 20 hectares of vineyards, of which three hectares are planted with Pinot Noir grapes. Some of the vines are 25 years old. These vineyards are situated around various villages in the Sancerre region. This family owned winery is well equipped and has recently invested in new heat exchange equipment to ensure that the grapes and must are cooled to obtain maximum freshness in the wine.

Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After racking, the wine was matured on its lees without undergoing malolactic fermentation. This wine was made in an unoaked style in order to maintain the purity of fruit.
