Eric Louis is a French producer in Thauveney-en-Sancerrois in the Loire. The Louis family wine business began as early as 1860 when Pauline, Eric’s great grandmother, started making wine and selling it at markets; the company, Les Celliers de la Pauline, are named after her. However, it wasn’t under the 1970s when Sancerre wines began their ascendency that this domaine really took off, thanks to Eric’s father, Leon.
Now Eric is at the helm and winemaker at the domaine, which extends over 10 hectares on the south- east side of the Sancerre vineyard. Here the soils are two-thirds chalk and clay, which is perfectly suited to the Sauvignon Blanc grape used for making Sancerre.
