The Grand'Chaille is a reference to the flinty soils (Silex) of this vineyard and offers up subtle differences in both texture and flavor. Expressive with zesty citrus fruits, pear, white flowers and white pepper, the rocky minerality lingers throughout with a smoky flint character. This wine delivers pure terroir expression with a satisfying and powerful finish.
The small 9ha estate of Domaine Thomas has been in the family since the 1670s, with ninth generation winegrowers Jean and Ginette Thomas, and their son Julien and partner Justine running the domaine today.
The domaine, which grows Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, is located in the village of Verdigny in Sancerre, with a high proportion of its vineyards located on the highly sought-after Silex soil that makes the most aromatic and pungent Sauvignons that the region is famous for.
Wild yeast fermentation is key in setting Domaine Thomas’s wines apart, in an appellation where selected yeasts are still the norm, and so does extended ageing on the lees, combined with low use of sulphur. The domaine also manages the vineyard according to biodynamic principles.
