With 13 hectares of vines in Bue, one of the most revered villages of Sancerre, Sophie and Thierry produce beautifully classic white wines in which the region is famed.
We arrived at the Domaine and looked down the street to see a gentleman in stubbies running from his tractor and up a steep hill with possibly one of the biggest grins I have seen. Out of breath and without a word of English, his enthusiasm could only be rivalled by Manuel of Fawlty Towers!
A sign of a great producer is their pride of the work they do in the vineyard. Thierry grabbed the keys to his ex US Military Jeep and we began a tour of his beautiful vineyards. It became evident this was a first class producer with fantastic attention to detail and passion.
