Sancerre Red

‘Tradition’ cuvées

Our cuvée 'Tradition' Sancerre Rouge is an excellent alliance of Pinot Noir and the Silex (flint) terroir. It brilliantly reflects the subtle nuances of Pinot Noir and the fine minerality. It has delicate aromas of raspberry, blackcurrant and morello cherries as well as a touch of flinty note that adds layers of complexity. Enjoyable when young and also to keep for many years to come!

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.
