Winemaker: Jean-Jacques and Baptiste Auchère
The Auchère family’s winemaking tradition has been passed from grandfather to father to son for generations. At the head of the family estate, Jean-Jacques Auchère personally approves each wine to assure quality and consistency.
The Auchère winery is located in the village of Bue. Their grapes are all sustainably farmed and from best vineyard sites in Sancerre: Chene Marchand, Les Monts Damnes, Chasseignes, and Les Deserts. The soil is a combination of limestone (Bue and Sancerre) a clay (Chavignol) which creates the texture and minerality Sancerre is so famous for.
The vinification is performed by using traditional methods. The juice is gravity fed into tanks to settle before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine is clarified and gently filtered.
