A 9th generation Sancerre winegrower, Philippe strives to make the best wines possible with his Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir grapes. He constructed his càve over 20 years ago, previously working alongside his father and grandfather, learning his craft along the way to make excellent wines. The càve and Sancerre vines are nestled in the village of Sury-en-Vaux, about 6k from Sancerre.
Philippe is lucky to have 3 appellations of vines on both sides of the Loire river, Sancerre, Pouilly Fumé and Coteaux du Giennois. With just 16 hectares in total encircling the region, the focus for him is to express the pure fruit flavours of Sauvignon Blanc and the natural terroir of the region.
