Region Sancerre

The Upper Loire Valley is the smallest region, yet home to it’s most famous and exported appellations: Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. The region was under the influence of the Duchy of Burgundy for most of its history  - and was once heavily dominated by Pinot noir. In the 19th Century, Phylloxera decimated many of the Pinot noir vineyards which were then replaced with the easier to cultivate Sauvignon Blanc. Cementing it’s reputation on the variety for a fresh, flinty, crisp white. 

Sitting opposite Pouilly-sur-Loire, on the left bank and traditionally shows less ‘gunflint’ and more chalky minerality with the classic aromas of citrus, lemongrass and gooseberry. Overshadowed by the whites, Sancerre Rouge, made from Pinot Noir can be a pleasant sour cherry and plums, light to medium bodied red with crunchy acidity.
