Setting of our white Sancerre "La Bourgeoise" in barrels

We put out of barrel this weekend the juice just started in fermentation of Sauvignon blanc which will be intended for our white Sancerre "La Bourgeoise" and who will do her alcoholic fermentation in new barrels, one year and two years during ten days.The barrels are thermo regulated using “serpentines” in which circulates cold water. This system makes it possible to control and maintain the temperature of the juice during alcoholic fermentation, whose activity creates heat.

This cuvee results from single vineyards of flint soil from the village of Saint Satur. This type of soil confers on the wine an aromatic originality which made it relatively reserved the 2 to 3 first years of bottle but which opens into the intensity and complexity as soon as this one has more than 3 years of bottle. These wines are characterized by elegant flavours with notes of smoke, gun flint, mineral notes, fruity (peach, pineapple) and floral (flower of acacia, flower of vine, flower of orange tree, peony). It should be noted that a great majority of our white resulting from flint soil are passed in barrels in order to offer more roundness and to bring soft spice notes like vanilla.
