Just a delightful Pinot Noir from this wonderful winegrower who makes the most marvellous wines from his small vineyard.
The Sancerre red is a perfect example of unoaked Pinot noir.
The colour is ruby red verging on brick.
The nose is definitely Pinot! Cherries and sometimes almondy including some more earthy smells of mushrooms and wet leaves!
The flavours match and therefore it's a pure delight with nutty flavoured cheeses like gruyère, comté, and some of the Pyrenees ewes cheeses such as Manchego.
Pairs with chicken, duck, pork and fish!
Try it out with Chinese pork and chicken dishes
... and nut cutlets!!!
It's considered to be the healthiest grape variety due to the tannins about which they say the resveratrol preserves us from heart attacks and other cholestrol-linked medical problems.
I need to say, however, that there is absolutely no scientific proof of this.
In the meantime, it is really rather a nice summertime quaff!
Totally UNOAKED as are all my wines
