This is the exclusively biodynamic label of one of Sancerre's most esteemed producers. The estate of François le Saint is totals 56 hectares of which 5.5 are dedicated to Sancerre. The wines are organically grown in kimmeridgian marls from vines that are 25-35 years old, and in the year 2000 they switched to entirely biodynamic harvest and vinification.

Silex (‘flint’) abounds in the vineyards around the commune of Sancerre.  These soils are the youngest in the region with large flint stones scattered through the vineyards.  These absorb heat during the day that increases the vines’ rate of maturation.  Known for their structure, wines made from Silex soils are taut and bright with a classic Sancerre minerality.  They will reward aging as well.
