Estate

Finger Lakes wine with a French accent. Domaine LeSeurre focuses on classic, dry wines made from distinct terroirs along Keuka Lake in upper state New York. Sébastien and Céline LeSeurre are a French husband and wife winemaking team. They craft their wines from old vines and choose grapes grown on different kinds of soil to add depth & complexity to the final blend. It is like comparing an orchestra to a single musician! “This is a winery to watch.” -James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Food pairing

It can pair with a fuller flavored fish such as salmon, and is a great accompaniment to cheeses. We love it with a nice steak and a side of grilled red bell peppers.

Vineyard

100% Cabernet Franc is selected from 3 different Finger Lakes terroir sites. The soil for 2 of the vineyard sites has a rich mix of clay and shale, and the third has limestone soil.

Vinification

Owners/Winemaking Team: Céline & Sébastien LeSeurre
21 days of skin contact with the first 4 days in cold soak. Aged 22 months in French oak barrels (1 out of 3 new oak barrels). We determine when to harvest by tasting the grapes for optimal ripeness, resulting in a more fruity and complex style; 2 pumping over twice a day, (morning and evening) except 3 plugging during these 21 days of skin contact. That allows a gentle and slow extraction. No enzyme and no tannins added.
