France's biggest summer holiday deserves a celebration of one of its most sought-after appellations for crisp, fragrant, summery wines.
And it won't hurt to showcase some of our absolute favorite—and most talented—portfolio winemakers while we're at it!
Join us Saturday, July 14—Bastille Day!—for a tasting and sale featuring the famously fragrant, floral, flinty wines of Sancerre, including 6 wines (red, rosé, and of course, white) from elite producers in Sancerre's gold-standard terroirs!
We'll feature 3 gorgeous examples of classic white Sancerre, each from a different village with its own unique terroir:
The sleepy village of Bué is home to Gerard and Pierre Morin, a passionate father-son duo whose crisp, expressive, intensely mineral Chêne Marchand cuvée sets the standard for the region.
In nearby Maimbray, you'll find Pascal Reverdy, a modest but supremely talented winemaker whose Les Angeslots Vieilles Vignes cuvée is exceptionally bright and fresh.
And, from Chavignol, we'll look at a citrusy white Sancerre with a mouthwatering trace of salinity from Domaine Anthony & David Girard.
We'll also pour two delicate reds—one each from Morin and Reverdy—on par with Burgundies at much higher price points.
Finally, we can't have a summer-themed tasting without a rosé, so we'll feature a fresh, silky, strawberry-filled offering from Domaine Chevreau.
