In a small hamlet named Amigny, Jean-Claude and his son Antoine farm 25 acres. Their land is partly made of “terres blanches” vineyards located closer to the village of Bué and partly of “Caillotes” parcels closer to Verdigny.
The terroir of the fifteen villages that make up the area of Sancerre is particularly unique in that the soil varies, so the wine flavors are slightly different.
For instance there is:
- Flint, which allows wines to taste like chewing on rocks.
- Gravel, which makes more lemony, apple-like wine.
- Chalk, which makes heavier floral, grapefruit-like wine.
- Limestone and clay, which makes very high quality, rich, full more herbal wines (like fresh thyme or tarragon) that still taste a little like drinking from a waterfall.
