We are here on the flinty, clay soil, right on the Sancerre Peak, at the spot on the east side called "La Demoiselle". The stone is compacted here into a dense layer of sharp, stumbling flints, a soil that is most unfamiliar to the Pinot Noir giving it great originality. The flinty mineral makes the cherry seem almost like kirsch with peppery notes that are reminiscent of a côte rôtie. A real surprise for such a great variety as the Pinot Noir.

The 2018 Sancerre La Demoiselle Rouge is deep, pure, fresh and fine on the detailed, polished, mineral and iodine-tinged nose that comes in with cassis, blackberry and algae aromas. Full-bodied, intense and fleshy on the finessed and elegant palate, this is a perfectly matured and sustainable Pinot with a lot of appeal. It has very fine tannins and a balanced texture. This is a remarkably good and balance red bottled with 13% stated alcohol. Diam cork. Tasted in December 2021.
