Product Details

Sancerre’s world fame is Sauvignon Blanc, but Sancerre Rouge is made by Pinot Noir.

Our ‘Ancienne Vigne’ cuvée comes from the Sury-en-Vaux village. Sury-en- Vaux is famous for its vine-covered hills and for its Terres Blanches terroir. The Pinot Noir enjoys this thick clay terroir, allowing a deep root system bringing concentration and finesse.

WINEMAKING & AGEING

A green harvest is done in August to obtain low yields. The deep color is achieved by a cold pre-fermentation maceration. The juices are punched- down daily with delicacy during the alcoholic fermentation. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in oak barrels of 228l (40%) and for 60% in tanks. After a light filtration, the bottling is done 12-18 months after the harvest.

AROMAS & TASTE

Blessed with a lovely violet-garnet colour, the nose expresses ripe cherries and slight smoky notes. The palate is concentrated, juicy yet balanced enough to fully reval the nuances of the Terres Blanches terroir.

FOOD PAIRING

Our Sury en Vaux Village cuvée will perfectly match your red meats in sauce, stew, osso bucco and bourguignon beef.
