Appellation

Sancerre is a small wine district in central France’s Loire Valley famous for its crisp, aromatic white wines made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape. For most of its history it was associated with red wine production. It wasn’t until the 1970’s with the increased popularity of white wines in Parisian bistros that Sancerre became synonymous with Sauvignon Blanc. The region has a cool continental climate, so the grapes have high acidity and crisp flavors. It is generally fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks without any oak influence. Enjoy Sancerre chilled and when it’s young and fresh.
