LES PIERRIS SANCERRE ROUGE
Domaine Roger Champault
100% Pinot Noir
The estate's history starts around 1850 and today, Roger Champault is the 5th generation in this family business. When Roger Champault took over the estate, he only owned 5 acres, little by little the estate grew thanks to the new land that was bought and therefore the new vines that were planted. He also modernized the viticultural and winegrowing facilities and put thermoregulated tanks in the cellar. After their studies, Roger's two sons, Laurent and Claude began working with him. They are now the two owners of this beautiful inheritance. Planted on slopes with renowned aspects and terroirs, the estate stretches over approximately 50 acres and farmed to the HVE process as the wines are HVE certified.WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES
