In 1919, Louis-Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle - inventor of the renowned Grand Marnier liqueur - bought the Château de Sancerre in the Loire Valley and part of its vines as a tribute to his birth-city of Sancerre. He restored the vaults and the stone-built spiral staircase of the “Tour des Fiefs” and transformed former outbuildings into a winery. The Château now produces wines with acclaimed finesse and fullness.
Château de Sancerre
Made from a selection of 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes, this wine boasts a rich, intense aroma of lily-of-the-valley, lilac, candied fruit and quince, with notes of coffee, nougat and gingerbread. Bold flavors of vanilla and mocha complement the full body and dense, fresh finish.
Intense and complex, this fresh, mineral wine offers an aroma of grapefruit that leads into a balanced body with rich texture and juicy citrus and floral flavors on the finish.
Expressive and complex, the captivating aroma of red berries pairs perfectly with light notes of oak and spice. The flavor is full-bodied with a balance of cherry freshness; the lovely aromatic length ends with bright jam on the finish.
