Domaine Serge Laloue

No mistaking the grape variety, for this white wine shouts Sauvignon Blanc for its vibrant, fragrant intensity. The youth and dynamism have upped the wonderfully run family winery's game and made it one of the appellation's stand-out properties.

Brother and sister team Franck and Christine Laloue work organically on their family farm. Practising 'agriculture raisonnée', they use no chemical herbicides or pesticides. Terroir is all-important, with this Sancerre coming from southeast facing slopes, some particularly stony, with a mix of chalk, sand and silex, and some iron-rich clay. These factors give a wine of intensity with beautiful aromas of fruit and flowers.

Serge Laloue

Domaine Serge Laloue has been a family winery since Serge planted the first vines here in the 1960's . Today it is run by his daughter and son, Christine and Franck.

 

Franck is the winemaker and he perpetrates the Laloue philosophy meaning respect for the soil is paramount as is the realisation that the makeup of the different soils are what give specific flavours and textures to the wines. The Domaine consists of many small plots, the grapes from which are vinified separately, to maintain their distinct characteristics.

 

Franck Laloue joined the family business in the 1990's and took on the role of closely monitoring the cycle of growing, analysing and studying every detail. He was not satisfied with just technical testing of the grapes, but insists on also tasting regularly to ascertain when they are absolutely right for harvesting. This way, the exact flavour profile he wants in his wines can be achieved.

Domaine Serge Laloue

The estate consists of 21 hectares of vines, essentially located in the commune of Thauvenay, 5 kilometres from the town of Sancerre. 16 hectares are planted with Sauvignon Blanc which produce our white Sancerre. The remaining 5 hectares are planted with Pinot Noir grapes that go into the production of our rosé and red Sancerres.
