Sancerre rouge domaine de terres blanches


Grape Variety : Pinot Noir 100%.

Soil : Our small vineyard of Sancerre red is planted on “caillotes” (hard limestone) and “Terres Blanches” (white stones)soils and is located in the district of Bué.

Production technical data : After being picked by hand, the grapes are fully de-stemmed and sorted for a second time, on a sorting belt, before going into vat. Fermentation follows after a cold pre-fermentation maceration. Extraction is obtained by punching down and pumping over operations throughout the short 15-day maceration period. Half of the wines are then aged in vat and the other half in barrels previously used for 2 or 3 vintages.

Tasting notes : On the nose, the wine expresses red fruit aromas. On the palate, the wine is firm and long, with some light, smooth tannins, which will give the wine a few years’ aging potential.

Food-wine pairings : This wine will be enjoyed with roast pigeon or grilled rabbit.

Serve at a temperature : of 13/14°C.
