Hubert Brochard Sancerre Cote des Monts Damnes


Côte des Monts Damnés (“damned mountain”) is a famous and very steep hillside in Chavignol. It was first planted by the Benedictine monks of the abbey of Saint-Satur in the 10th Century. This classic site of terres blanches soils rich in limestone is prized by growers for the ripe and exotic flavors and powerful structure it lends to the wines.

Sancerre Côte des Monts Damnés is a wine of great power and intensity, typical of the hillsides of Chavignol. Ripe, exotic notes of guava and passionfruit are accompanied by notes of minerals and herbs. The Kimmeridgian soil brings structure and a unique mineral character to the wine while one year aging on the fine lees before bottling lends richness and texture.
