Appellation

Sancerre is a small wine district in central France’s Loire Valley famous for its crisp, aromatic white wines made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape. For most of its history it was associated with red wine production. It wasn’t until the 1970’s with the increased popularity of white wines in Parisian bistros that Sancerre became synonymous with Sauvignon Blanc. The region has a cool continental climate, so the grapes have high acidity and crisp flavors. It is generally fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks without any oak influence. Enjoy Sancerre chilled and when it’s young and fresh.

Estate

For generations the hillside vineyards of Sancerre have been home to some of the world’s greatest Sauvignon Blanc’s. Durand carries on these traditions by crafting classic wines from this iconic region. This small wine district in central France overlooks the Loire Valley river which helps to temper this cool climate. The soils are a point of pride for Sancerre's winegrowers. They are divided clearly into three main types: chalk, limestone-gravel and silex (flint). Durand is crafted from vineyard blocks on a mixture of soils to add complexity and depth to the final wine. The wines are made in a state-of-the-art winery with modern temperature-controlled fermentation tanks and under careful supervision to guarantee the most expressive and consistently complex wines possible.
