Red, Rose and White Wines from Sancerre

Sancerre is a region located in the eastern part of France. It is one of Loire valley where grapes grown and wine are produced. The region has cool climate and chalky soils. Until the late 19th century, Pinot Noir grape is the main grape product in Sancerre. Red wine from Pinot Noir grape is commonly produced.

In the late 19th century, killer bugs plagued the vineyards. These bugs were known to inject their poisonous saliva in grapevines that intended to kill the grapes and devastate the vineyards. The vineyard crisis was called phylloxera. After the devastation, locals replanted grapes in the form of Sauvignon Blanc.

Sauvignon Blanc became the ideal choice of grapes as it works well with Sancerre’s cool climate. The grape grew popular and white wine is produced thereafter. Now, Sancerre produces red and rose wine from Pinot Noir and white wine from Sauvignon Blanc.

Reverdy Jean Sancerre Les Villots Rouge 2018

Reverdy Jean Sancerre Rouge is made from 100% Pinot Noir

The wine is spicy and juicy with cherry aromas, and proves the point that power is not necessary for a fine wine.

Reverdy Jean Sancerre Rose 2020

Reverdy Jean Sancerre Rose is made from 100 percent Pinot Noir.

Color: Pale salmon pink color
Nose: delicate aromas of roses and orange blossom that will transform into gooseberry and peach blossoms as the temperature in the glass rises. 
Mouth: The palate is crisp, lean and elegant, but the flavors are quite persistent with cherry, blackcurrant,apricot and red currant aromas.

According to the Sancerre AOC regulation, maximum yield authorized for the rosé is 55 hl/ha.

Pairs well with poultry and spicy food.

Review:

"Vivid orange-pink. Fresh strawberry, tangerine and floral scents are sharpened by a frisson of chalky minerality. Clean and racy on the palate, showing fine clarity to the red berry and citrus fruit flavors. Finishes minerally and dry, showing energetic lift and strong, mineral- and floral-driven persistence. - Josh Raynolds"

Thomas Sancerre Rose 2020

Thomas Sancerre Rose is made from 100% Pinot Noir.

Vines are 20-55 years old.
Terroir (soil type) is a blend of "Caillottes" and "Terre Blanche".
Everything is machine harvested (which means it is 100% destemmed).
50% Direct press + 50% Saignée (bled) with 12-24 hours of skin contact maceration.
The alcoholic fermentation is done in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.
Right before bottling, the wine is fined with Bentonite (very light filtration with oenologic clay).

Tasting Notes:
Light, bright pink. Redcurrant, strawberry and chalk on the nose, with a touch of singed orange gaining strength with air. Dusty red fruit and citrus flavors are braced by tangy minerality, which adds lift and cut. Uncompromising in the best way, finishing with excellent clarity and echoes of lemon and orange zest.

Food pairings:
This is a very versatile wine. You can have it on its own in the summer time as an apéritif. But it is also excellent with Hors d'Oeuvres and terrines. It will compliment any white meat dish and poultry. You can also enjoy it with salmon or exotic food (slightly spicy sushi).
