The Giennois appellation came into being in 1998 and is effectively a northern extension of the vineyards of Pouilly-sur-Loire. As with all the other satellite appellations, most of the new of growershere are also cereal farmers, although there has been a fair influx of producers arriving from Sancerre and Pouilly, confident that they can increase their production in other neighbouring appellations. The additional attraction for those on the right-bank is that the Giennois allows the production of both red and rose wines too.
The four hectare vineyard of Domaine de L'Oselier is in Beauliieu-surLoire. Until 2014, they were worked by George Coudrat who, with no succession, retired with the vines passing to the Berthier family who also make wine in Sancerre. Everything is planted on the band of silex which runs through the appellation . Some of the Sauvignon vines are over 100 years old and are bush vines which means that they need to be hand-harvested. The rest are around 25 years of age. The grapes are pressed within the appellation, although the vinification takes place in Ste-Gemme-en-Sancerrois.
