Method & Production

François le Saint Sancerre 'Silex' comes from 25-year-old vines. The grapes are de-stemmed and taken to the pneumatic press on a conveyor belt in order to avoid damaging the fruit. Work in the winery respects the lunar calendar. The wine is naturally vinified using indigenous yeasts.
