Just a two hour drive south of Paris on the left bank of the Loire River lie the ancient vineyards of Sancerre. Here, Sauvignon Blanc is picked from white limestone soils and then fermented slowly in small batches to achieve the exquisite balance of fullness and intensity that made it a favorite of French royalty. Now you can drink like a king for less than the price of two cocktails!
Lively and vibrant with notes of grapefruit, wildflowers, and blackcurrant buds. The wine is full and supple with a crisp freshness and a feisty mineral finish. Sip it alongside grilled salmon, lemony chicken, or over a bed of lightly dressed mixed greens with tangy goat cheese.
