Domaine Pastou is located in the commune of Sury-en-Vaux, a sleepy town located amidst the rolling hills in the Northern section of the Sancerre appellation. Jean-Marc Pastou has been making wine under his own label since the early 1980’s, planting his first vines (now his oldest), in that same year. They hold a total of 10.5 hectares of vines in Sancerre, including numerous parcels in the lieu dit of ‘Les Boucaults’ – the bulk of which goes into the cuvee for MSW, hence the name of this bottling.
|Vines are 15-20 years old (with the oldest up to 25 years). The wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel, malcolactic fermentation is blocked, and the wines ages 4-5 months on its lees before being bottled with minimal use of sulphur. The total production of the winery never exceeds 10,000 cases.
