There is no chaptalisation, no added yeasts or enzymes, the wine ferments naturally and Gérard doesn't filter unless absolutely necessary, keeping sulphur levels as low as possible. This is stunning Sancerre and from one of the best. Gerard's wine might just give you a different impression of what Sancerre can be.

Notes on the producer

With a family history of winegrowing in Chavignol that dates back to the 1300s, there is little wonder that the Boulay clan have managed to assemble one of the finest collections of vineyards in the area. The steep, south-facing, Kimmeridgian limestone slopes that tower over the tiny hamlet are one of the world's more remarkable terroirs. They offer a perfect symbiosis, matching soil, aspect, climate and grape variety. Gérard Boulay is one of the greats of this tiny village and produces some of the most distinctive and sublime wines in Sancerre. Yields are 20% lower than the average in the appellation and, in the winery, whilst he adheres to certain basics Gérard follows no recipes, essentially working by feel.
