Chateau de Sancerre stands proudly in the middle of the Sancerre Vineyards. The current chateau was rebuilt in 1874 on the same site as the original medieval castle, which was destroyed following the Wars of Religion in 1612.
The Chateau and vineyards were bought by Louis Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle in 1912, and it has remained in the family ever since. The Region Sancerre AC (Appellation Controlee) is situated at the eastern end of the Loire Valley, France, in the sub-region of the Central Vineyards. The climate is quite cool, and the vineyards sit on the slopes of various hills on chalky, stony soil rich in marine fossils.
The Wines Chateau de Sancerre produce wines made from Sauvignon Blanc, the major white grape of Sancerre. The style of wine is quite typical for the area with gooseberry and elderflower aromas, texture and high acidity. They are great food wines and perfect for medium term drinking.
