Current owner and winemaker Hlene Mardon is the 5th generation of her family to make wine in Quincy. With some of the oldest holdings in all of the Loire, they are undoubtedly the top producer in the appellation. The village of Quincy is located about 50 miles west of Sancerre on the left bank of the Cher river and has composed of more gravel and sandy river debris, yielding a particularly juicy and minerally Sauvignon Blanc. 50-80 year old vines made and aged in tank.

The Estate
The village of Quincy is located about 50 miles west of Sancerre on the left bank of the Cher river. This lesser-known Loire Valley appellation is an excellent source of crisp, driving, minerally Sauvignon Blanc.

The Mardon family has been producing wine in the area since the early 19th century and it is nearly indisputable that they produce the best, most serious, most complex Quincy available. It is a small, family owned estate with the cellar literally below the house and a total annual domaine production of under 10,000 cases. Their Tres Vieilles Vignes cuve, bottled especially for Daniel Johnnes, is made from vines that exceed 50 years of age and up to 80 years old, and it rivals many a top Sancerre for sheer fruit density and depth.

Domaine Mardon is not certified organic but does not use and herbicides and plants grass between its rows of vines. " ~ Winery notes

"Simple and fruit driven. Wishing it had a bit more stoniness."
