Vins de Sancerre - André Dezat & Fils

The Sancerrois vineyard covers more than 2,700 hectares on the left bank of the Loire.

The Sancerrois vineyard covers more than 2,700 hectares on the left bank of the Loire.

The Sancerrois consists of a relief of hills which includes the "Piton de Sancerre" on the edge of the Loire Valley. The coast (culminating at 356 m) is formed by the layers of the upper Jurassic to the west. Two meridian faults, known as Sancerre and Thauvenay, from north to south, brought the collapsed layers of the Cretaceous and Eocene into contact with the Jurassic formations of the western part.

The intense erosion has resulted in the formation of more than fifteen types of soils of which the three main ones are:
The "terres blanches", located on the hills west of the Sancerrois, of clay-limestone composition.
The "caillottes", very stony and calcareous.
The clay-siliceous land, on the hills to the east of the vineyard.

The Pouilly soil, composed of Kimmeridgian marls, hard limestone and flint, gives the Pouilly Fumé its minerality, its finesse and its character, fresh and lively, sometimes frank and long in the mouth, without forgetting a ubiquitous fruit.
Citrus fruits (citrus fruits, grapefruit), fruits from here and elsewhere (redcurrant, grapefruit, passion fruit, lychee), white flowers (acacia, lily), but also the hazelnut or quince.

The vineyard of Menetou-Salon is a vineyard of the Loire located to the northeast of Bourges.
This vineyard of 465 hectares of hills, is planted on limestone sediments dating from the upper Jurassic (kimmeridgian).
