The Neveu family, viticulteurs father and son, have been based in the heart of the Chavignol vineyards for generations, and today carry on the tradition of the great Sancerrois vignerons. Valérie (André Neveu’s daughter), and her husband Thomas, now run the domaine that extends to about 13 hectares of vines of AOC Sancerre red, white and rosé. They harvest, vinify and sell everything themselves.
The 2017 Le Grand Fricambault is crafted from 100% sauvignon grape planted on the Sancerre hillside, a terroir composed exclusively of Silex. Vinification is carried out in temperature controlled tanks and the resulting wine is dry, minerally and fruity. Best served chilled with oysters, shellfish, and goat’s cheese, such as the famous "Crottin de Chavignol".
