Antique Sancerre Rouge

'Antique' Cuvée

Our cuvée L’Antique is made from a selection of 40+ years-old Pinot Noir vines planted in the villages of Saint-Satur and Sancerre. The vines are deeply rooted, bearing small clusters of very concentrated grapes reaching perfect maturity. They are harvested by hand, sorted and placed in small vats as ‘whole bunches’. A one week cold maceration is done before the alcoholic fermentation (FA). During the FA, the grapes are delicately hand punched down, an old technique known as ‘pigeage’. L’Antique is aged in the 228 liters Burgundy barrels for 6 to 12 months before being bottled without filtration.

This wine is available in France from 31,80 € at your preferred wine shop, or at our online shop Aux Trésors de Bacchus

Baked strawberries, cherries and some sweet cinnamon. A light cocoa dusting to the fruit, too. Medium body with wild strawberries and sour cherries. Very juicy, with a nice, fruit-expressive finish. Drink now.
