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.

2015 vintage
Harvest Note
High temperatures and limited rainfall during the summer months led to poor flowering in some areas of Sancerre, lowering yields and accelerating ripening, which forced a relatively early harvest. The 2015 vintage harvest began on September 17th, slightly earlier than the previous year. Sanitary conditions were excellent. This vintage is reminiscent of 2003 and 2006, which were stellar years.
Tasting Note
A generous wine with beautiful aromatic purity of ripe green and stone fruit. Pear and peach flavors with a hint of grass on the palate, with excellent minerality and a touch of salinity. The crisp acidity is well-integrated and nicely balanced.
Food Pairing
Pairs very well with a wide variety of fish dishes, especially those with spicy and exotic sauces. Halibut with Pepper Salsa, Southwestern Style Tilapia Tacos, or Sweet & Spicy Sriracha Salmon are great accompaniments. Also, marinated white meat dishes of grilled chicken or pork are nicely complimented by this Sancerre.
