Sancerre Rouge Vieilles Vignes 2012 - Domaine Fournier


This upmarket red Sancerre is made of over 40-years old vines, giving it an additional complexity. It offers tasty flavours of cherry, leather and licorice, with smooth tannins and a long and spicy finish. Definitely worthwhile discovering, as this is much better than some Pinot Noir from Burgundy at the same price!
