Winery Vincent Gaudry

Vincent Gaudry
Wine producers, Real Artists!

If you are looking for Sauvignon Blanc’s explosive aromas, passion fruits or intense herbaceous character in Vincent Gaudry’s Sancerre wines, you should look elsewhere.

Vincent Gaudry’s Sauvignon Blanc wines strong point is not the characteristics of the variety. It is all about the breathtaking terroir they come from that is seen in its purest and most authentic form. Gaudry’s wines offer more than a taste of Sauvignon Blanc; they represent the true essence and authenticity of the Loire valley and Sancerre. His small winery, essentially a small warehouse, is located at the village of Sury-en-Vaux, 3 kilometres away from Sancerre hill. For all natural vinification enthusiasts, Vincent Gaudry is a true celebrity. In 2004, he was the first producer to receive biodynamic culture techniques certification for his 90.000 m2 vineyards comprising 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Pinot Noir. His work in the vineyard and the winery is 100% energy and emotionally-driven. He leaves the vine and the wine to speak for their needs and follows no specific vinification recipes. Vincent Gaudry is patient and gives his Sancerre wines the time they need and does not pressure them. No yeasts or enzymes, no filtration or fining methods. Tanks are left with wine lees for as long as needed depending on the characteristics of each year. Gaudry’s approach is non-invasive, contrary to other local producers who rush to market their wines as soon as possible. Gaudry’s white and red Sancerre wines are austere wines, full of energy and minerality. They are ethereally balanced in the mouth, with finesse and poise that are seldom found in such a natural way. They are the genuine representation of each year, of the unique terroir and the idiosyncrasy of the winemaker. They will effortlessly charm you as they did to all of us at Mr. Vertigo…
