Sancerre Rouge

Sancerre Rouge AOP

Red Sancerre perfectly illustrate the virtues of the Pinot Noir grape variety. They are fragrant, elegant, fine and they have delicate aromas of red berries, ranging from cherries to blackcurrants. They are well-balanced, supple and have a powerful palate. Both rich and complex, Sancerre is a reference for great Loire wine lovers.

VINEYARD

The grapes are grown on the famous hilly slopes composing the 3 Terroirs of Sancerre : Caillottes (stones and clay), Terres Blanches (clay) and Silex (flints).

WINEMAKING

After being hand-picked, the grapes are sorted and de-stemmed. Cold-soaked maceration is done for a week before the fermentation starts. The extraction is done by pigeages and pumping over during 10-15 days.

AGEING

To preserve its style and flavors our Pinot Noir is aged in stainless steel tanks and a small percentage is aged in oak barrels. This Sancerre is then bottled in Spring after a very light filtration.

FOOD PAIRING

Grilled red meat, game meat, cheese.
