Dom Pierre Prieur & Fils Sancerre 2016 Product #31899 (In Stock)

A great wine is even better in the zesty 2016 Loire Valley harvest. Classic Sancerre Sauvignon, with generous aromas and flavors of white peach, white grapefruit, passion fruit, flint, and a touch of herb.  Supple and very pure on the palate, it finishes with refreshing cut and minerality and lovely purity to go with the rich texture.  A great food Sancerre that's polished enough to just sip, too.

Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Rose 2016 Product #31940 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Rose 2016 Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Rose 2016

Sancerre just might be the benchmark for rosé made from Pinot Noir, and this is certainly a benchmark Sancerre pink.  100% Pinot Noir from vineyards in Chavignol, it serves up fresh sweet cherry and ripe strawberry fruit enlivened by a twist of lemon peel and herb.  Finishing pretty and fresh and nicely dry, this will be delicious with smoked salmon bites, mild paté, and just lounging in the sun.

Classic Sauvignon Blanc from Chavignol, the home village of Henri Bourgeois.  You’ll find all the classic Sancerre aromas and flavors here – white citrus, fresh grass, lime skin, gun flint – in a ripe wine that has plenty of amplitude but also terrific balancing cut and vibrancy.  A terrific example of the rounder, style of Sancerre from Chavignol and ready to enjoy now with or without food.

Fleuriet Renaissance Sancerre La Magie Des Caillottes 2015 Product #31961 (In Stock)
Fleuriet Renaissance Sancerre La Magie Des Caillottes 2015 Fleuriet Renaissance Sancerre La Magie Des Caillottes 2015

From vines up to 40 years-old growing on Sancerre’s famous Kimmeridgian soils, the chalky marls responsible for the best wines of Chablis and Champagne, too.  Fermented and aged 50% in tank and 50% in brand new French oak barrels, allowing the oak to round off Sauvignon’s sometimes harsh edges and time on the fine lees to add body and creamy richness.  The oak shows in the wine’s texture – round, smooth, voluptuous – but not so much in the aromas and flavors.  It’s bold and rich with very ripe peach, white citrus, and an exotic touch of tangerine.  There’s plenty of body in this warm vintage, but also a sizzlingly sharp finish where lemon citrus and mineral notes make your mouth water and keep the flavors fresh and long.  A fine wine to just drink for refreshment on a warm day and even better with cilantro-laced Vietnamese fish dishes.

Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Chapelle des Augustins 2014 Product #31967 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Chapelle des Augustins 2014 Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Chapelle des Augustins 2014

Ripe, tart, lightly herbal, and pulsing with gunflint minerality, this stunner from old vines drinks well now and will be better from 2018.

"The combination of chalk and flint soils has produced a wine that is young and all about minerality at this stage. It has considerable potential with its hints of ripe fruits. For now, with texture dominant, it is still fresh, tangy and developing."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

"This ripples with gooseberry, thyme and chive notes, thanks to mouthwatering acidity that pulls everything through the finish with tightly coiled focus. Show subtle depth, echoing with a hint of bitter citrus."Wine Spectator 91 points

Gerard Boulay Sancerre a Chavignol 2016 Product #32229 (In Stock)
Gerard Boulay Sancerre a Chavignol 2016 Gerard Boulay Sancerre a Chavignol 2016

The Boulay family have held vines in Sancerre since 1380 and Gerard Boulay has grown and made wine here for almost all of his 60 years.  He holds about 22 acres of vineyard on the steeply sloped hill of Chavignol, the heart of Sancerre.  His 35-70 year-old vines dig into Chavignol’s famous white “terre blanche” chalk and limestone soils also important in Champagne and Chablis.  The farming is all organic, the vineyards worked and harvested by hand, and the winemaking as simple as can be with native yeasts, no new oak, and minimal use of sulfur.

Vintage 2016 is a great one here, every bit the peer (or better) than 2014.  I think Wine Advocate’s 92 point review of the 2014 sums up what you’ll find in your glass from this bottling well:  “Wild and intense on the nose, pretty aromatic and upfront in its classic orange and citrus flavors that come along very pure and mineral, though really intense and with no compromises. Full-bodied, full-flavored, pure and mineral on the palate, this is a characterful and well structured Sancerre with great expression, salinity and grip. A real character, as always.”

Ch Fontaine-Audon Sancerre Blanc 2014 Product #31695 (In Stock)
Ch Fontaine-Audon Sancerre Blanc 2014 Ch Fontaine-Audon Sancerre Blanc 2014

What Sancerre is all about, in this case from a prime vineyard on classic silex soils.  While there's nice fruit here, this is all about minerality. Bold aromas and flavors of lemon/lime pith, pulp, and peel with a hint of something herbal and loads of gunflint and mineral.  Finishes with fine energy and length, leaving fresh citrus fruit, pith, and flint flavors lingering on.  Mouthwatering and complex.

Fleuriet Renaissance Sancerre Magie Des Caillottes Rouge 201 Product #32235 (In Stock)

Wines like this remind you why Sancerre was such an important RED wine region before the World Wars!  It's 100% Pinot Noir from a warm, ripe, vintage given just enough time in barrel to round off edges and add compelling spice.  Rich, bordering on opulent, it's bursting with sweet and tangy cherry and raspberry fruit enveloped in layers of smoke, spice, and fling.  Delicious on its own and even better with dinner.
