Around 180 hectares of vines have been selected for the production of our Crémant de Bourgogne. Our constant quest for perfection has enabled us to ensure increasingly high-quality wines, year after year.
It has taken Sainchargny almost a hundred years to build up a palette of the finest nuances of Burgundy.
The vineyards are situated in the Mâcon region, on the eastern edge of the Massif Central. The subsoils, which provide perfect conditions for the production of Grand Crus, are characterised by the presence of Kimmeridgian strata, a marly limestone formation composed of large quantities of tiny oyster fossils.
Over 100 wine-growers work year round on these ancient lands. It is the diversity of its terroirs that gives Sainchargny its strength and unique style.
Noble grape varieties
Of all the grape varieties grown throughout the world, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are undeniably two of the most well known, respected and acclaimed. They are considered as “noble” varietals owing to their ancestral origins and the purity of their aromas. This Burgundy heritage, which has been passed down from generation to generation, is particularly well-suited to the soils of Sainchargny and it is for this reason that the cooperative has chosen to produce its wines using these two varietals. Because noble grape varieties result in noble Burgundy wines.
Proud to protect the environment
Sainchargny is well aware that the decisions it makes today will have an impact on the future and is therefore committed to sustainable winemaking. Its viticultural choices have long been influenced by a sustainable ethos and it endeavours to take into account environmental, social and economical factors in order to preserve its heritage for future generations. The wine-growers know that Nature is priceless and they work together each day to preserve the environment.
As part of its process of continual improvement, Sainchargny’s development respects environmental and societal norms. Since 2014 it has proudly borne the VDD label (Wine-growers in Sustainable Development), a symbol of evolution, innovation and ethics. The future is in our hands and Sainchargny is doubling its efforts to ensure that its heritage is preserved for many centuries to come.
