The Merlin-Cherrier family have been growers in Sancerre for four generations, and winemakers since 1982. Their 13 hectares of vines in Bué lie on some of the appellation’s finest soils, divided between Terres Blanches and Les Caillottes. The former produces a distinct fruitiness in the wines, while the latter brings out a minerally elegance and finesse. They blend 30 different parcels together to make wines with impressive poise and balance. Respect for the environment is their mantra – they rested one particular vineyard for 10 years by planting it with grasses, and now it produces their finest grapes. Sancerre enjoyed great conditions in 2020 and quality is excellent. So enjoy a top notch Cuvée Hélène – recommended with fine seafood.
