90 Points Wine Enthusiast for our Sancerre Rouge
This blend of 100% Pinot Noir offers you a memorable moment of conviviality. Warm, red berry fruit characterizes this fresh Pinot Noir. Ripe tannins are balanced by fresh acidity. It is at once lush and tense, silky and nervy, this is a conversation-piece wine that will wow even your pickiest oenophile friends. A good match to fish such as red mullet or monkfish; would also work with a well-ripened Brie or Camembert. Crafted by Laurent Reverdy, 6th generation of Sancerre winemaker. Score published in Wine Enthusiast Best of Year – December 2020.
With 92 points, our Le Garenne White Sancerre is now the highest rated Sancerre of DWWA 2020
A delicate and complex Sancerre with great depth of fruit; the boisterous green aromatics often found in Sauvignon Blanc have been skillfully restrained, allowing fruity layers of green apples and lemons to show through. The wine comes from Verdigny at the heart of goat cheese country so is ideal with a soft tangy ‘crottin’. Also great with delicate flat fish in a caper sauce. Crafted by Laurent Reverdy, 6th generation of Sancerre winemaker.
Quote from Decanter’s Jury: “Orange and yellow plum aromas. Richly textured with fine bright acidity and fruit concentration. Peachy ripeness on the finish”. Score is published online at DWWA2020 Winners.
