Pottery fragments found in this vineyard show that this was a farming settlement in Gallo-Roman times. After the farm disappeared, the site remained without vines for a long time before being planted again. “Sanvignes” [vineless] then changed to “Cent-Vignes” [hundred vines] – since a plot with vines cannot be “Vineless”!

This 1.27-hectare vineyard (3 acres) is located at the bottom of the slope. It enjoys a soil composed mainly of clay and loams.

Traditional method, completely de-stemmed in open vats. No yeasting – natural yeasts. Pigeage or remontage once a day.

14 months in French oak barrels, 30% of which are new. Slow malolactic fermentation. No racking.

Food pairing

Ideal accompaniment to red or white meats, or cheeses such as Cîteaux, Brillat Savarin.
