Foucher-Lebrun was founded in 1921 is a “Petit Négociant” specializing in wines from the Loire Valley. The company’s mission is to convey as accurately as possible the expression of the appellations in the Loire region by careful selection, vinification and ageing of its wines.
In late 2009, the company decided to try raise its image as well as develop its business overseas, so they brought on a new partner, Jean Mounard, who runs a fine and rare wine brokerage business in Paris. J.Mounard is now overseeing the selection process for the wines of the company. He has also begun an activity of producing small quantities of wine from selected plots in Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé and Saumur-Champigny and raising them in their cellars outside Pouilly-Fumé. Given his deep experience tasting the great wines of the world, as well as his contacts among top producers in the Loire, he has been able to significantly raise the bar in terms of the quality of the wines.
Chinon Moulin ChapîtreAromas of red fruit and just a touch of smoke on the nose. In the mouth the wine offers ripe, rounded tannins. The fact the vines are old is evidenced by the concentrated and rich mouthfeel, without however the wine losing the typical freshness that is the true characteristic of Cabernet Franc. The finish is long, fresh and balanced.
Muscadet de Sevre et MaineIntense aromas, on the nose and in the mouth, first fresh, then revealing a heady mix of apricot, ripe peaches and the scent of flowers.
Les Glories SancerrePale yellow color with a fruity and citrus nose. A pure Sancerre with incredible freshness and minerality. It has a good depth, lovely, citrus fruit, and a classic flintiness on the nose and palate.
