Sophie and Thierry Merlin-Cherrier cultivate 13 hectares of prime location Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in and around the commune of Bué in Sancerre.They bottle two white cuvées, a generic blend and, since 1999, a separate bottling from Le Chêne Marchand. Le Chêne Marchand is a single gentle south facing site situated between Bué and Crézancy and is recognised as one of the potential ‘Grand Cru’ vineyards of the appellation – should the Berrichon ever take this route. The wines are aged on their lees in a single concrete tank for between 15 and 18 months, and the request to bottle a quantity in magnum signifies our belief in the wines ability to age and mature further. The estate applies the principles of la lutte raisonée.
