Domaine Gerard Fiou Blanc Sancerre
The Domaine Gerard Fiou is a family Estate which was created several generations ago by Gerard Fiou’s ancestors. After his father, Gerard developed the Domaine to grow to a size almost 9 hectares to 80. As the years past, Gerard Fiou undertook to develop his property by taking care to limit the strength of his vineyard and to respect the ecosystem of the grounds.
Today, ensuring that the vines are worked in harmony with nature, the plots of land are now ready for their conversion towards biological culture. The parceling-out together with the wearing down of the equipment used on a hard ground, consisted essentially of flint stones on the surface, make this conversion an important expensive decision.
Nevertheless, this type of ground cultivated by Gerard Fiou is an exceptional soil where the effect of accumulation of the heat during the day in summer, and the restoration of this heat in the plant during the night, helps the maturation of grapes in Sauvignon Blanc and in Pinot Noir to be continuously active and the maturity is consequently always excellent.
The Domaine Gerard Fiou is a property which benefits from exceptional resources. The Bourgeoi Family, friends of Gerard Fiou for several years, accepted his proposal of a total partnership considering that the vineyard and the terroir are evident assets to develop quite a different style of wine (additional to the wines made by the family in Chavignol).
Bringing their know-how since the acquisition, as well as their experiences, the Bourgeois Family is nevertheless anxious to preserve the depth of the style of wines from the Domaine Gerard Fiou in order to reach more new values (complexity, intensity, fruitiness).
This Sancerre Blanc offers aromas of flints and spices. On the palate, it is powerful in fruit and in body. An elegant wine with a superb balance and a delicate and harmonious expression.
