Passionate about their work and facing a production that preserves and protects the environment ( growing, without synthetic products or herbicides ) , vintners François Millet and Monique work a vineyard exposed sud-sud/ouest and disposed around the village Bué in Sancerre, a set of two distinct terroirs , whose reputation extends beyond the long borders : "The caillottes " Terroir limestone, very stony representing the largest part of the domain . Clay rates there are not very important. " White Land": Land of clay- calcareous clay with significant rates. Mounds of pebbles found there are fossils dating from the era of cetacean. The term white earth is due to their white color during drying after rainfall .
