Description

Quincy, Domaine de Chevilly has aromas of citrus, pepper and floral notes, the palate is fresh, fruity with hints of mineral and balanced acidity. Perfect alternative to Sancerre of Pouilly-Fumé.

Quincy has a long history of winemaking and was the second appellation created in France back in 1936. It is situated south east of Tours and south west of Menetou-Salon. The terroir is mainly sand with patches of clay which suits Sauvignon Blanc as it warms rapidly, bringing early ripening.

This is now one of the best domaines in Quincy. Yves is currently president of the Quincy growers’ association.
