Matthias and Emile’s vines grow on the hillsides of Maimbray and Sury-en-Vaux in the northern sector of Sancerre. This zone is known for its terres blanches or Kimmeridgian Marls—white soils made of clay and marl and stones on top of Kimmeridgian limestone, and make for pointed, powerful wines that need a couple of years in bottle to show best (and indeed have the potential to age surprisingly well, but almost never are permitted to do so). The brothers have 14 hectares (35 acres) in Sauvignon Blanc and 2.5 (6 acres) in Pinot Noir. Matthias and Emile have been steadily upgrading their cellar and now are able to work with gravity to move their wine during the fermentation process. The Sancerre Rouge Origine is a Pinot Noir that is normally made with native yeast and aged in a large upright oak vat. Annual production averages 750 cases. Rasberry, cherry, clean, pure, violet, black tea, mint.
