Sancerre Red

‘Tradition’ cuvées

The Sancerre wine region stretches across magnificent hillsides that are very well suited for vine cultivation. They are well protected with exceptional sun exposure. The flint soils contribute to the remarkable quality of the region’s wines. The Pinot Noir varietal thrives in these soils and truly comes into its own. It is thanks to this ability to reflect and transcribe the terroirs that a single varietal approach is used for vine cultivation in Sancerre.

This wine is available in France from 20,90 € at your preferred wine shop, or at our online shop Aux Trésors de Bacchus

Grape-variety

100% Pinot Noir

Age of the vines

20 to 45 years

Soil

Flint

Vinification

The grapes are grown in my finest Flint parcels in Sancerre. Green harvesting is carried out after ripening so as to limit yields and increase the concentration of aromas in the fruit. The clusters are fully de-stemmed before being vatted for around 3 weeks of maceration in order to achieve a fruity aromatic profile and exceptional concentration. Frequent cap punching and pumping overs ensure a slow and delicate extraction of the tannins and colours 

Tasting notes

Color:

The colour of red peonies.

Nose:

An expressive nose of violets and rose, blueberry and blackberry plus a touch of black pepper.

Palate :

In the mouth it is ample with good texture, and firm but refined tannins. We find the same black fruit as on the nose and a fresh, lingering finish.

Serving temperature

15 - 17 °C.

Food Pairings

Game in sauce, beef teppanyaki or a spinach and roasted tomato lasagna.

Do you ever drink Sancerre rouge? I tasted this yesterday in my tasting room @jamessucklingwinecentral and I really enjoyed it. Finished the bottle with Marie at home with spicy squid and pork dish with rice.

This is a really pretty Sancerre rouge with cherries, plums and hints of stones. It's medium-bodied with soft, silky tannins and a medium finish. Delicious now.
