Franck Millet took over here some years ago and, ably assisted by his wife Betty, he has worked wonders both amongst the vines and in the cellars. His Domaine lies in Bué, one of the very best of the Sancerre villages.
The famous ‘Côte des Monts Damnés’, meaning ‘damned mounts’, was named after its very awkward slope making it difficult to work. Lying on the typical Kimmeridgian marl of the area, it enjoys fantastic sun exposure making wine with intense flavours and minerality. Aromas of citrus, white stone fruit and white flower and incredibly mineral. Elegant and complex with a firm acidity and a very long finish. This amazing Sancerre will open up over time, and age without effort.
