Domaine Roc de l'Abbaye
‘Roc de l’Abbaye represents the quintessence of the Silex terroir’ – Florian Mollet, Artisan Winemaker
Domaine – Located at the foot of the ‘Clos du Roc’ parcel in Saint- Satur. The Village of Saint-Satur is located on the banks of the Loire River (East side of the Sancerre appellation) and at the foot of the Colline de Sancerre. Gateway to the Sancerre appellation and to Burgundy on the other side of the river, Saint-Satur enjoys a privileged geographical position within the appellation. Terrior – One of the rare Sancerre estates with all of its parcels planted on the flint (Silex) Terroir. This represents only 15% of the vineyards of Sancerre. It is the most sought-after terroir because it produces wines with a ‘taut’ profile, with ‘gunflint’ aromas, a strong ‘minerality’ combined with finesse and power. Vineyards – AOP Sancerre: 11.5ha vineyard, spread over 5 towns ; Bannay, Ménétréol, Saint-Satur, Sancerre and Thauvenay. The vineyard is planted with Sauvignon Blanc on 10ha and with Pinot Noir on 1.5ha. AOP Pouilly-Fumé: located near the wine-growing hamlet of Boisgibault (which is part of Tracy sur Loire) where the Mollet family comes from. The entire vineyard of 6ha is planted with Sauvignon Blanc grapes.
