2011 Loire vintage: news from our producers: les Champaults (Sancerre)


Claude and Laurent Champault with their 2011 Sancerre

Roger Champault et fils: Claude and Laurent Champault
Claude: "We were surprised by how well the vintage turned out because before the start we were worried by rot. We picked the reds first – those of the hillsides (clay and limestone) were healthy, while on the caillottes (pure limestone) there was more rot. The Pinot is around 11.5% potential alcohol with just under 5 acidity, while the Sauvignon is between 12.5-13.5%. Yields – 50 hl/ha for the Pinot and 65 hl/ha for the Sauvignon."
