Sancerre Rouge is part of the production of this historic Domaine of the Loire. Foussaier is a family that has been producing wines for 10 generations, a direct testimony of the territory, the result of organic and biodynamic cultivation.
Pinot Noir grapes are the protagonists of this wine, handpicked on a limestone-clay soil, they create a red with an intense and elegant character.
The production cycle follows the moon phases, each chemical element is banned in favor of exclusively natural compounds, while only indigenous yeasts are used.
We are talking about a wine that expresses all the grace of Pinot Noir, which has nothing to envy to the great Burgundy wines, absolutely to be uncorked on important occasions.

Name: Domaine Fouassier Cultivated hectares: 59 Address: 180 Avenue de Verdun - Sancerre (France) Web Site: www.fouassier.fr/index-en.html
This wine domaine has been in the family for 10 generations. It now covers 59 hectares of vineyards planted primarily with the Sauvignon varietal. In the era of standardisation, we adopted an avant-garde approach by vinifying our wines separately according to their lieu-dits (individual parcels). We chose to move away from modern vinification techniques to allow nature to craft our wines.
We are committed to using growing methods that respect the soils, water, life forms and natural rhythms in the vineyards in order to produce authentic, living wines. We believe that this is the only way to give our Sancerre terroirs the freedom they need to reveal their true potential. The entire Domaine is managed in accordance with the principles of Biodynamic Agriculture. The Biodynamic approach and the lunar calendar dictate our work in both the vineyards and the winery. We are a member of the Biodyvin consortium, which is a group of wine producers who are committed to using Biodynamic wine growing methods. Our work is subject to monitoring and certification in order to receive the Biodyvin seal of approval.
