Château de Sancerre


Advance before the best
That was the motto of the Constable of Sancerre

Situated right in the heart of France, Sancerre and its impregnable feudal castle were the target of many wars and assaults. In 1621, the Duke of Berry decided to destroy this edifice - a symbol of resistance. Only one of its six towers was spared due to a lack of gun power: the Tower of Fiefdoms. At present, this unique vestige, 30 meters above the town’s highest point, offers a full panorama of the vineyard of Sancerre.

Sitting on the hill of Sancerre and overlooking its undulating curves, the new and majestic Chateau de Sancerre appears to be always ruling over the surrounding now peaceful town.

Chateau de Sancerre is one of the rare French wine estates bearing the name of an appellation, such as Margaux or Pommard. Situated on the left bank of the Loire and overlooking a unique terroir of four different soils, its 55-hectare vineyard is planted with vines, representing an average age of 25 years. The region’s rolling hills and semi-continental climate produce lively and crisp Sauvignon Blanc wines boasting good structure, and evoking well-ripened gooseberry aromas and smoky, flinty notes, with crisp acidity. The wines of Chateau de Sancerre are made, matured and bottled in-house. The art of blending meets high standards in keeping with the Constable of Sancerre’s motto: “Advance before the best”, (equally that of the Counts of Champagne, of which the aristocracy of Sancerre is a younger branch). This formidable man of war was also the lucky owner of this fabulous vineyard. His favorite motto is still proclaimed today.
