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.

M de Mulonnière is a beautiful dry white wine from Anjou, where Chenin Blanc is at its best. Manual harvest and traditional winemaking are used to make the most of the exceptional local terroir and the Chenin Blanc. It opens on a nose of almond and acacia, with fresh grape and honey notes. On the palate, the wine is soft and well-balanced with a nice...

This "Red Kiss" is a great cuvée to discover the Anjou Villages appellation. Made of Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% of Cabernet Franc from the left bank of the Loire, it is a soft and deliciously fruity medium-bodied red with aromas of ripe fruits, spices, toast and vanilla. With already a few years in the bottle, now is the perfect time to enjoy it with a...

What a delight to find such an affordable Pinot Noir! La Petite Perrière is very typical of the Eastern Loire Valley: it is simple, light-bodied and fruity, with a little hint of vanilla on the finish. Made with 100% Pinot Noir - the grape used to make the famous Sancerre - this bottle is a lovely lunch wine that would pair nicely with any white meat,...

Typical well made Sancerre with citrus aromas and a light exotic touch. This crisp and fresh white wine presents a long and fruity finish, which is remarkable for a “simple” Sancerre. We would love to see this outstanding quality for all Sancerre bottles you can buy at this price, but we are not there yet. Highly recommended for Sancerre lovers. *...
