About Philippe Raimbault

Winegrowers for many generations, the Raimbault family is fortunate to own vines on both sides of the Loire, in the Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, and Coteaux du Giennois appellations. Philippe Raimbault, a ninth-generation vintner, is based in the village of Sury-en-Vaux, just north of Verdigny. He produces Sancerre wines from the steep hillsides surrounding the village and Pouilly-Fumé from the clay-limestone soils of Saint-Martin-sur-Nohain. The slopes of Giennois, overlooking the Loire and the town of Cosne-sur-Loire, are harvested for their unique terroir.

Philippe Raimbault's vineyards are planted on steep slopes of les caillottes soil, dating back to the Jurassic period, leaving behind fossils of sea creatures more than 130 million years old. He grows Sauvignon Blanc on Silex clay soils for his Sancerre wines, while Pinot Noir and Gamay are grown for his Sancerre Rouge and Rosé. His "Apud Sariacum" cuvées, named after the ancient name of Sury-en-Vaux, are classic examples of the steely minerality Sancerre is known for. The Pouilly-Fumé "Les Lumeaux" exhibits the natural characteristics of its limestone-clay terroir, while "Mosaïque" is sourced from several parcels of predominantly Kimmeridgian marl soil, giving the wine extraordinary balance. Through his dedication and passion, Philippe Raimbault continues the family tradition of producing exceptional wines that showcase the unique terroir of the Loire.
