Our association with Baron Philippe de Benoist, who founded Domaine du Nozay in 1970, came about as a result of Corney & Barrow’s close relationship with Aubert de Villaine, owner of legendary Burgundy property Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and also Philippe’s brother-in-law. Given the connection, it will come as no surprise that Domaine du Nozay’s viticultural and winemaking philosophies are similarly meticulous, espousing organic methods. Since son Cyril took over running the domaine a few years ago, the estate has been certified as fully organic and from the 2017 the estate is also biodynamic by Demeter.
The Domaine’s vineyards boast a high proportion of prized ‘terres blanches’, the chalky-clay soils rich in marine fossils linked to the distinctive flavours and textures of many great Sancerres.
