Jean-Michel Sorbe is one of the most engaging characters producing wine in the Loire Valley today. He has vines in Reuilly and Quincy and produces reds, whites and rosés. Quincy wines are often accused of lacking the subtlety and finesse associated with Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé, but Jean-Michel would beg to differ and produces wines of intensity and balance. He machine harvests the grapes and then ferments them in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and is without doubt the best producer in the village. However, even a producer as good as M. Sorbe must consider the options when there’s no heir apparent. Joseph Mellot, one of Sancerre’s negociant wine producers, has recently bought the property, thereby ensuring the wine will continue to be enjoyed for generations to come.
