The Quincy appellation lies to the north-west of Sancerre on similar Kimmeridgian marls. Yves’ grandfather came from the Correze in the high Auvergne and established himself here as an arable farmer, with some 200 hectares under cultivation. In 1994 Yves and his father, and latterly his oenologue wife, started to plant various small parcels to Sauvignon Blanc, and they are now considered to be one of the best sources of this relatively little known appellation. Their lovely Quincy has a fragrant nose with gooseberry and citrus aromas underlined with smoky mineral notes. It is crisp and dry on the palate with a long, fresh finish, and will immediately appeal to all lovers of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé.
