The Clos du Roc stems from the famous and ancient Saint-Satur Abbaye circa 1450. Located on a steep south facing flinty hill, it is one of the most beautiful plots of the Sancerre appellation. The vines get the maximum sunlight and grow sheltered from the cold winds, protected by the forest ‘Bois de Charne’ located just above the vineyard.
An impressive single-vineyard wine, this is powerfully rich as well as finely textured. Apple fruits are enriched by touches of apricots and ripe Bartlett pears. The wine's texture promises further aging, so drink from 2021.
