The Famille Thomas Sancerre Les Creots is produced inside the picturesque hamlet of Verdigny in the central Loire is the Thomas family. They’ve been growing grapes in Sancerre since the 17th century. Julien Thomas is the 13th generation winemaker to assume the charge of crafting outstanding Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. His modern innovation is the not-so modern incorporation of biodynamic practices into the families 16 hectares of vines. Another technique he has introduced is stirring the lees in the barrels of Sauvignon Blanc for 6-8 months. This a common method for Muscadet on the Atlantic coast, but less common in the central Loire. The wines have loads of depth and personality, and provide a different dimension to Sancerre’s personality.
