The Auchère family’s winemaking tradition has been passed from grandfather to father to son for generations. At the head of the family estate ,Jean-Jacques Auchère personally approves each wine to assure quality and consistency.
The Auchère winery is located in the village of Bue, and their plots are sustainably farmed. The white vineyard is from those famous plots: Chene Marchand, Les Monts Damnes, Chasseignes, Les Deserts. The white Cuvée is issued from a clay (Chavignol) and limestone soil (Bue and Sancerre) covering 24 acres.
The vinification is performed by using traditional methods. The juice is gravity fed into tanks to settle before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine is clarified and gently filtered.
The nose opens with pure minerality and exotic fruit. Flavors of grapefruit, lychee and lime combine with a clean and crisp palate. Persistant, fine and zesty. A classic Sancerre.
An excellent addition to grilled fish, salmon tartar or fresh spinach and goats cheese salad.
