Domaine Fouassier have a simple mission: to protect the land for future generations while making the best Sancerre wines possible.
Each member of the Fouassier family has learned the ropes from the previous generation, but has been allowed the freedom to put their own stamp on the wines. Current winemaking team, Benoit and Paul, have propelled the domaine towards organic and biodynamic viticulture, despite the difficulties of doing so in the damp Sancerre climate. In this way, they are committed to passing on the land in the best condition possible, while showing off a true expression of their terroir in the wines.
And the wines are great. The whites are exceptionally bright and delicately balanced, with those signature notes of pear and lemon that are so quintessentially ‘Fouassier’. And for a refreshing, chillable (and oh-so-on-trend) red, you couldn’t do much better than their Iconoclast Pinot Noir. A fascinatingly light wine that’s refreshing, versatile and packed with plenty of fresh berries, including pleasantly sour cherries.
