Sancerre Pinot Noir 2016

Friday night and I have opened the 2016 Domaine Dominique et Janine Crochet Sancerre Rouge Pinot Noir from the Loire Valley. If you are looking for alternative Pinot Noirs to Burgundy, look to the Loire Valley.

On the nose I get raspberry, cherry, clove, caramel, vanilla, herbs, oak and earth.

On the palate is cherry, raspberry, cranberry, violet, vanilla, minerality, light oak and earth

This wine is medium bodied with medium to + acidity and medium + mouth coating firm fine tannins that lead into a long fresh fruit finish. A very nice Pinot Noir from the Loire Valley and I will be looking for more. Have a great weekend and be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

La Grande Côte Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Beautiful and atypic character. Very distinguishing from this producer I believe. Beside the Sancerre tone a deliciously candied citrus and stone fruit aromas — 3 days ago

Good core minerality and restrained acid with nice core flavors. Organic, family owned and hand harvested. Extra time on lees adds to the supple mouthfeel. Great oyster wine also good with Thai. — 15 days ago

Sancerre Rouge Pinot Noir 2015

Started out surprisingly tannic and scorchy, but with air it’s softening and the floral fruit is peeking out. But the time my braised rabbit arrives I’m hoping it will be shining.

UPDATE: 2 hours later, it’s much softer and more open. Raising from 8.9 to 9.0
