Pale golden straw color. Aromas and flavors of dressed white asparagus, citron, onion jam, and pineapple studded brioche with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium body and a refreshing, medium-length finish that shows notes of preserved lemon.

Loire Sancerre

Wine Glass White.jpg
Serve in a White Wine Glass
Sancerre is a wine from the Loire Valley of France. While there are rosé and red versions made (both from Pinot Noir), Sancerre is most commonly produced as a dry white wine, made entirely from the Sauvignon Blanc grape.

Sancerre is one of the reference points for Sauvignon Blanc - it is that famous. Medium-bodied to medium-full, very dry with lively acidity, Sancerre is a richly flavored white with notes of melon, citrus, pears and gooseberries; it generally has a long, complex finish with a distinct note of minerality or chalk.

Sancerre is made in unoaked and oaked-versions; while the wines are enjoyable upon release, the best examples need time to display all their complexities; five to seven years is an optimum time to enjoyment, while examples from the best sites are capable of aging for more than a decade.

Sancerre is an assertive, dynamic white wine with great finesse. Pair with goat cheese or strongly flavored seafood.
