Domaine Philippe Raimbault

Basic Info

In Sancerre, just a short ride north of Verdigny, lies the village of Sury-en-Vaux, home to Philippe Raimbault, a ninth generation vintner. Owning vines on both sides of the Loire, in the Pouilly Fume and Coteaux du Giennois appellations, Philippe has vines planted on steep slopes of les caillottes soil from the Jurassic period, an era that left behind fossils of sea creatures that are more than 130 million years old. On steep slopes of Silex clay soils, Raimbault grows Sauvignon Blanc and for his Sancerre Rouge and Rosé, he grows Pinot Noir and Gamay. The producer of Sancerre “Apud Sariacum” and Sancerre “Apud Sariacum” Rosé, he named both after the ancient namesake of Sury-en-Vaux, because the vines encircle the village. The Apud Sariacum cuvee Sancerre is the most classic exa mple of the steely minerality that everyone has come to love and expect from Sancerre.
