When people think of Sancerre often they are thinking of Sauvignon Blanc and the crisp minerality it displays when grown in the Sancerre soil. However, Sancerre does produce beautiful nuanced Pinot Noir. These Pinot Noirs can be made into rose versions. Case in point the 2021 Rose of Pinot Noir, Roi Des Pierres, is light and bright, all while bringing a greater depth for rose that can often be missing. This wine will certainly pair well with seafood focused dishes and lighter protiens. Come in today and try this excellent offering!2020 Chardonnay, Domaine Ferret, Pouilley Fuisse, FR
Pouilly-Fuissé is an appellation for white wine in the Mâconnais subregion of Burgundy in central France. Pouilly-Fuissé has Chardonnay as the only grape variety and is therefore grown and tended with excellent care. Domaine ferret exemplifies this as a blend of the best representative parcels of the Fuissé amphitheatre. The average age of the vines is 40 years, which gives the wine a lemony fruit profile, with mineral notes and bright aromas of acacia flowers. On the palate the texture is silky and lively, but there is a pleasant creamy edge to give balance. Please come and check out this terrific offering soon!2019 Domaine Vaccelli Rose, Corsica, FR
An elegant wine with great texture. The grapes are biodynamically farmed and the wine gives off a light pink color with a range of red berries and white flower flavors. Aged in oak barrels and cement tanks, this wine is made of 100% Sciaccarellu (pronounced ‘shack-a-rello’) . Sciaccarellu is a native grape grown on the island of Corsica that thrives in the granitic soils found around Ajaccio and Sartène on the western coast of the island. It is an excellent accompaniment to fish dishes, chicken and other Mediterranean fare.
