Sancerre Rouge 2016 Domaine de la Perrière


Even red wines are well made at Domaine de la Perrière. This light bodied Pinot Noir is hand harvested, carefully processed and spends time in used oak barrels to give a light spicy touch on top of its red fruit flavours. Sancerre wines are mostly white (80% of the production), and this wine is the brilliant proof that the appellation can produce very nice reds as well.
