Chêne Marchand in Magnum, still at the top of the great Sauvignon de terroir, still in its gangue, it will unfold all its complexity over time. In this vintage, one of the most prized in the Sancerre region, the Sauvignon is always more restrained, displaying a fine austerity in its youth. But it conceals a large-scale material carried with élan and power towards a chalky finish. A great white wine for laying down.

The Estate

Based in Bué, the Pinard family, now led by Clément and Florent but still under the watchful eye of their father Vincent, is continuing its spectacular progress towards excellence, with organic farming and a demanding desire to transcribe each specific terroir as well as possible.
The Sauvignon parcels are now at an exceptional level, neck and neck with two or three other estates in the appellation.
The Pinot Noir still has no equivalent... and remains a very rare item...
