Sancerre Les Tuilières 2014

Michel Redde et Fils

Sancerre Les Tuilières 2014 play

Region: France / Loire Valley / Sancerre
Grapes: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Pebbly chalk and limestone subsoils in the vineyard along with warm summers result in a wonderfully vibrant, fruity wine. Michel Redde uses temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats to create a pure expression of the Sauvignon Blanc grape, then the wine rests on its lees until bottling.

harvest note

The 2014 vintage required particular skill from winegrowers to determine proper harvest dates for various plots, which fluctuated from the typical harvest progression. Good weather prevailed and grapes reached optimal maturity prior to the climate deteriorating – the bulk of harvesting began in late September and finished in the first two weeks of October. The maturity of the grapes resulted in vibrant, balanced wines.

tasting note

A very approachable, classic Sancerre: zesty with a hint of grass as well as white fruit on the nose. Crisp on the palate, with pronounced but well-balanced acidity.

food pairing

Pair with fish and white meat dishes.
