Domaine Serge Laloue Sancerre 2016
This domaine was created in the early 1930's by Francois and Simone Laloue. In addition to grapes they grew grain and tobacco and raised livestock. In 1960, their son Serge took charge of the small plots of vines and concentrated on viticulture and winemaking. Today the domaine measures 20 hectares spread over all three of Sancerre's terroirs, (Terre blanche, Caillotes, and Silex). The vines are planted to 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Pinot Noir and the winery in Thauvenay was completely renovated and enlarged in 2006. The domaine is currently being run by Serge's children Franck, winemaker since 1990, and Christine. They practice sustainable agriculture and 80% of their vines are left to grow grass between the rows. The benefits of this are many in Franck's opinion. The vines dig deeper to compete for moisture, the grass reduces both erosion and the natural vigor of the vines, which in turn reduces yield. Franck further reduces yields by de-budding in the spring and pruning heavily.
