At Domaine Les Poëte, in the heart of the Cher Valley, Guillaume Sorbe advocates for as little human intervention - both on the vines and in the cellar - as possible. This epic work has led him to take inspiration from Greek mythology when naming his wines. This well-rounded Pinot Noir shows that Burgundy is not the only place where beautiful wines can be created from this noble variety.
Delicate and light, the domain’s only red wine (for now) is full of light, harmonious aromas dominated by small, acidic red berries. Red cherry and mulberries lead the way in perfect harmony. A fine yet persistent wine, its lengthy finish is reminiscent of the hard years of waiting that Penelope, the wife of hero Odysseus, faced.

Reuilly Odyssée Les Poëte serve at a temperature of 15°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Poélée de champignons, Araignée marinée, Fromage de tête persillé.

    Information about domain Les Poëte

    Domaine des Poëte is one of those gems of the Loire that deserve all your attention. Located in the rather modest appellations of Quincy and Reuilly, Guillaume Sobre produces perfectly ripe, well-balanced Sauvignon. He cultivates his 6 hectares of vines in an environmentally friendly way; for him, the only logical way, with little intervention but a focus on the well-being on consumers. Son of winemaker and trained chef, he turned to sommellerie, studying enology in Beaune. He then returned to the Loire, inheriting uncultivated land and bit by bit planting vines. His motto of “less is more” is reflected both in the vineyard and the cellar. He doesn't seek high yields, rather strives to get the best of the grapes' aromatic potential. Vinifications are also low intervention: élevage without sulphites, nor any other inputs. Maturation periods last between 12 and 18 months, in barrels and vats. The wines are bottled 6 months before being put on sale.
