DOMAINE BERNARD FLEURIET ET FILS

AOC : MENETOU SALON, SANCERRE

The Fleuriet family is two brothers -- Mathieu and Benoit -- who manage 36 acres of the Sancerre appellation, a world renowned wine from the Upper Loire, in the eastern part of the valley , southeast of . The domain has been moving to organic viticulture for the past two years. The soils on the domain for the Sancerre are from three different parcels mostly made of flint, a soil composition that produces long-lived wines. These parcels allow the wine maker great freedom in blending the different cuvées. The harvest is done by hand to select the best berries. A special ovoid concrete vat is used to produce the whites.
