Red wine. Sancerre, Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. "Pierre Morin makes his Sancerre rouge bottling using whole clusters and raises the wine half in older casks and half in stainless steel tanks. It is made from a parcel of thirty-five year-old pinot noir vines planted on a combination of terres blanches and caillottes. The 2027 version is quite lovely, offering up an impressively complex bouquet of red and black cherries, woodsmoke, raw cocoa, gamebird, chalky soil tones, a nice touch of cedar and just a whisper of fresh herb tones in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows fine depth at the core, with good soil signature, ripe, fairly firm tannins, good focus and grip and a long, complex and quite promising finish. This is quite a refined example of Sancerre rouge, but it is still on the young side and needs a few years’ worth of bottle age to really start to hit on all cylinders. 2024-2045+." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
