The story: Nestled in the picturesque region of Sancerre, France, Domaine Fouassier stands as a beacon of viticultural heritage and expertise. This family-run estate has been cultivating vines and crafting wines with passion for over ten generations. The Fouassier family is deeply rooted in the traditions of winemaking, yet they embrace modern techniques to refine their craft.

Domaine Fouassier is particularly renowned for its exceptional Sancerre, with the vineyards that produce their Grand Fossil located on the slopes and hills that separate the historic village of Chavignol from the town of Sancerre. The soils are composed of 65% clay and 35% limestone, providing the ideal terroir for the region's legendary Sauvignon Blanc. Fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks; it is then aged for 5 months, resulting in a character that showcases all of the reasons why Sancerre has become a global byword for excellence.

Why You'll Love Me: Remarkably aromatic with pretty white flower and fruit fragrances. On the palate it reveals a freshness that is pure and clean. Notes of citrus, apple and gooseberry with hints of passion fruit are found in this lively and bright wine. The finish lingers pleasantly with persistent citrus notes and a clean minerality and a structure that suggests not only immediate enjoyment but also potential for aging gracefully over several years.
