Eric Louis is the 4th generation proprietor of Domaine Robert Cantin, a 100 acre estate located in Thauvenay at the southeastern edge of the Loire’s famed Sancerre appellation. The domaine, which has farmed under sustainable principles for many years, has recently begun converting to fully organic production. The winemaking emphasizes quality with low yields and strict controls in the vineyards and cellar.
Les Piers Blanc is made from grapes grown in the unique Silex (limestone and flint) soils of southeast Sancerre. Vines average 25 years old and face southeast for optimal sun-exposure. Winemaking emphasizes quality by slow pressing the freshly-picked grapes.
The result is a superb and unique Sancerre that blends acidity, minerality, and fruit driven richness of stone-fruit and pear.
