Aromas of light spice, red berries, red plum skin, wild strawberries, blood orange. Fresh, mineral, refined. Grown on the same “terres blanches” soils that contribute energy and a saline edge to the estate’s Sancerre Blanc, this 100% Pinot Noir blush wine is exceptional and also very rare. Aged in tank. Red berries, wild strawberries, red plums, spice.
The Cherrier family has been a trusted name in Sancerre since the late 1800s. Here in Chaudoux, north of the village of Sancerre proper, Sauvignon Blanc is equally in its element: soils are a refined mix of flint and chalk, a terroir marriage that makes the best Sancerre so vibrant.
The estate founder, Maurice, planted some of the first vines in the village. His son, Pierre, took over in the 1960s and expanded the family holdings to some 35 acres of prime vineyard land. Today it is Pierre’s sons, François and Jean-Marie, who have taken winemaking at this generations-deep family estate to a whole new level, with terroir-true wines that are stunning values for their high quality.
