Sancerre Rouge 2016


Crisp – Red Fruit – Light - Energetic
There is no intention to mimic the Pinot Noirs of Burgundy here, it is a thoroughly different region and thus a wine of different character is produced, Francois and Carine focus on preserving the freshness and striking minerality that the flinty soils of Sancerre deliver. A well thought out wine with excellent balance, it is not at all top heavy on the fruit although that would be rather easy to do and to get away with. Instead it has just the right amount to frame the pert acidity and physicality that is delivered on the palate through the fine tannins and chalky minerality. A great demonstration of what can be achieved with Pinot Noir in this appellation.

Francois Crochet
Producer Profile Francois Crochet
Francois grew up on his parents vineyards. In 1998 he fulfilled his dream to become a winegrower and a winemaker and took over the helm. The wines from Francois and his wife Carine are some of the most precise and refined Sancerre we have tried. Their power, accuracy and green herbaceous purity are what sets them above most from this appellation.
