Eric Louis Winery, in the Heart of Sancerrois, Making Quality Wines

The Eric Louis winery is in the heart of Sancerrois, making quality wines with a combination of traditional methods with modern and innovative techniques. Eric’s great grandmother, Pauline, started selling wine in 1860. Their special cuvee, ‘Cuvee Pauline’ and the cellar ‘Les Celliers de la Pauline’ are named after her. Her son, Julien, with his wife Louise, continued to run the winery with the same love and passion. After him, his son Leon married Ginette and established the Les Celliers de la Pauline after merging the two wine estates. Currently, Eric Louis is the one who is running the family business and making wines that reflect their family traditions and the qualities of their gifted terroir.

Combination of Traditional Methods With Modern and Innovative Techniques

Their vineyards are spread around 32 hectares of land on the slopes of Sancerre covering the villages of Vinon, Thauvenay, and Menetreol sous Sancerre. The diversity in the terroir of the region gives uniqueness and complexity to the wines. The vineyards are planted on clay-limestone, flint, and sand and gravel soils. The diverse soils, coupled with a unique microclimate, allows for the growth of healthy, fruity grapes. The main grape varieties grown here are Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Gamay, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, and Chenin Blanc. These are used to make their high-quality red, white, rose, and sparkling wines. Care is taken all year of the vineyards, and biological methods are used to preserve their health. There are two vaulted cellars, one for the vinification of red wines in oak barrels while the other cellar has acacia and oak barrels for ageing of the white Pauline Cuvee.
