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.
Listen to the podcast as Lori and I explore the region, the history, the wine and food pairings.
