A discrete Sancerre with the delicacy typical of Sauvignon.  More info

The cuvée Les Chasseignes is produced from Kimmeridgian limestone soils. The vines are 25-45 years old. The grapes are destemmed and transported very carefully to the pneumatic presser. Fermentations are carried out with indigenous yeasts. The wine is matured in stainless steel vats. The wine isn't fined. Rather discreet on the nose, with notes of ripe fruits and wet stone. On the palate, the wine is taut and the texture is dense. The finish is fresh and aromatic.

Sancerre Les Chasseignes Fouassier (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 11°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Saint-Jacques au yuzu, Homard grillé, Crotin de chavignol.

    Information about domain Fouassier

    Domaine Fouassier is a family-run property on the slopes of the Piton de Sancerre. The Fouassiers are one of the oldest winemaking families in the appellation, going back several generations. The vineyard boasts almost 56 hectares, planted with 80% Sauvignon and 20% Pinot Noir, and has been cultivated on biodynamic principles since the early 2000s. The wide range of whites make for a wonderful palette of wines - some light and fruity and others fleshy or mineral. The reds, as good Pinot Noirs, are elegant and distinguished.
