Sancerre at its best. Aromas of apricot and peach and a rich satisfying palate with tropical fruit flavours. Sancerre Domaine la Gemiere is a well balanced wine with good fruit, depth of flavour and crisp acidity on the finish.
Winemaker Daniel Millet is extremely picky about the fruit he hand-selects to produce his award-winning Sancerre. Daniel selects only the finest Sauvignon Blanc, which he fashions into thrilling white wines. Flinty yet with a hint of ripe Sauvignon balanced by a rich mineral weight – wines from this Domaine are consistently excellent and represent fabulous value for money.
The vineyard is a family history. Our grandparents and great grandparents used to work in the vineyard in addition to farming and breeding cattle. Only in the seventies, during the rise of Sancerre‘s wines in Paris, did wine growing become a full-time work.
Then in 1981, Daniel and Josette Millet built a cellar on a plot of land named “La Gemière“, Domaine “La Gemière” was then born… They started off with 20 acres and develop a wine true to their image. In 2000, both sons, Sebastian and Nicolas, joined the family farm to work on the 45 acres of vines that the area currently counts. The first works in the cellars, the second in the vineyard. Thus they perpetuate tradition and modernize the field, always in deep respect for their land.
