Located in the heart of Sancerre in the Loire, Domaine Fouassier, founded in 1742, currently in the hands of Benoît and Paul, passed from father to son by now ten generations. The Fouassiers are in fact among the families with the longest wine-making tradition in the area. The production philosophy is based on absolute respect for the terroir, and for this reason the vineyards are cultivated according to the principles of organic and biodynamic agriculture: an agriculture that respects the soil, water, living beings and natural rhythms. Maria Thun's lunar calendar regulates the work in the vineyard and in the cellar.

Today the vineyards extend over 60 hectares and the various parcels can be divided into three different types of soil: limestone (Les Grands Champs, Les Grous, La Garenne, Sur le Fort), clay-limestone (Clos Paradis, Les Chasseignes, Le Vallon), siliceous (Les Romains, Le Clos de Bannon, Les Chailloux); all soils where Sauvignon Blanc & Pinot Noir are mainly grown.The ancestor Jules Fouassier was among the first to use sulfur and copper, to intersperse acacia plants with the vines and to react to phylloxera by planting new vineyards.

For Benoît and Paul, working in symbiosis with nature is the only way to sublimate the Sancerre terroir in order to offer wines that are alive and authentic, allowing each bottle to tell the story of the territory.
