The Domaine Serge Laloue estate was founded in the early 1930s by François and Simone Laloue who were farmers of cereals, vines, tobacco. In 1960, their son Serge came to work on the farm and focused on viticulture. He began by working his parents’ small vineyard and then, on his own, he expanded the estate which now totals approximately twenty hectares of vines. Located 200 km from Paris, the 2,800 hectares of Sancerre’s vineyards stretch across the upper and middle parts of the surrounding hills. 75% of these vineyards produce white Sancerre (Sauvignon Blanc) and the remaining 25% produce red and rosé Sancerre (Pinot Noir). Domaine Serge Laloue wines are made from a blend of grapes from three different terroirs: Siliceous clay soils located at the tops of the slopes, "caillottes" (little stones), that are very stony and calcareous located at mid-slope, and sandy clay terroirs that are rich in iron, and located at the bottom of the slopes. The variation of terroirs allows for a beautiful variation of flavours and aromas.
