Tasting Notes

From 50 year old vines on terres blanches soils. Softly smoky, with good tension and hint of menthol along with yellow peppery notes and ripe mango too. Young now, but looking very promising indeed. We tried a 2017 and it was simply fantastic, promising a long and delicious future.

More Info

The Fleuriet family have a prodigious history in the region since the 18th century, first as humble farmers and cheese makers, and more recently as vignerons. But here we have Renaissance Fleuriet Freres, a story of collaboration between brothers Benoit and Matthieu and their friend Stephane Marchand. In 2014, Stephane could no longer maintain his vineyard, and so the brothers stepped in to help restore his 7ha of vines, and the rest is history! Renaissance's vineyards sit across 5 distinct terroirs, with much of them on excellent terroir in Sancerre. Organic since taking day 1, the 2021 vintage is the first as biodynamic.
