Vincent Pinard is one of the most dedicated producers of the Loire valley and, with 15 hectares based in Bué, has vines in some of the best sites around Sancerre, including prized holdings in the famous Clos du Chêne Marchand. Vincent certainly makes the most of this privileged position, crafting some of the most exciting wines in the appellation. The excessively low yields, hand harvesting and modern winery, complete with temperature controlled vats, result in enticing, aromatic and intense wines.

“Arguably one of the top two producers in Sancerre with some of the best vineyard sites, Vincent Pinard is dedicated to his craft. He is based in Bué and has 15 ha of vines, including prized holdings in the famous Clos du Chêne Marchand. Vincent certainly makes the most of this privileged position, crafting some of the most exciting wines in the appellation. The excessively low yields, hand harvesting and modern winery, complete with temperature controlled vats, result in enticing, aromatic and intense wines. Although not certified organic, they do not use any pesticides in the vineyard.

In terms of style, the Cuvée Flores is unoaked and intensely mineral, while the Cuvée Nuance is more complex and textured, with subtle wood influence. The Cuvée Harmonie is aged in barriques and is rounded, restrained and extremely complex. We are delighted as ever to have allocations, however small, of the two single vineyard wines, Chêne Marchand and Petit Chermarin. These wines are exquisitely elegant with great subtlety, complexity and concentration. “
