Sancerre is a wine region located in the central Loire Valley.
It looks over the river Loire. It’s basically known Sauvignon
Blanc, but Pinot Noir also grows there and they produce a Pinot
Noir and a Sancerre Rose.
The Loire Valley is quite large and Sancerre is closer to Burgundy than it is the center of the valley. They were granted AOC status in 1936.
The soil is what brings the complexity and minerality to the Sauvignon Blanc. The freshness comes from the minerality not the acidity.
