"Terres Blanches" Sancerre Rouge
Pinot Noir is the main red grape of Sancerre. It represents about 20% of plantings and has a particular mineral character unique to this region with herbal undertones and a crunchy texture. The nose expresses nervy fruits of raspberry and black cherry and are complemented by violet flowers, hints of oak, pepper, and crushed rock. The energetic finish alludes to great aging potential.
POINTS OF INTEREST
This Pinot Noir comes from two tiny parcels that are cultivated with the utmost care. Intense green harvesting with multiple passings (up to 30% depending on vintage) ensures that the phenolic ripeness aligns with the sugar ripeness. Punch Downs during fermentation with native yeast brings a real deep color and texture not often found in Sancerre Rouge. One year in oak allows the wine to settle naturally without fining or filtering.
