Domaine Paul Cherrier

Put Stéphane Cherrier on your “Young Vigneron To Watch List”.  Since 2002 he has pushed the quality of the wines higher and higher.

Domaine Paul Cherrier has been in the family for 6 generations but has only been solely devoted to viticulture since the early 1980s. When Stephane Cherrier returned to the domaine for the 2000 harvest after viticultural travels in Australia, New Zealand, and Chile, he convinced his uncle to begin bottling wine from the best cuvees. At present, 1/3 of the domaine’s production is bottled.

The vineyards are scattered around Verdigny on clay-limestone soils. The wines are fermented in stainless steel and aged on their lees. The Sancerre Blanc is a selection of the best cuvées in the cellar chosen for bottling.  The result is an expression of the age of the vines.   Stephane wants the wines to make themselves so there is very little intervention in the cellar.
