Sancerre is a wine appellation that lies in the beautiful Loire Valley in France. It is rightly famous for the thrilling Sauvignon Blanc wines that are produced here. It is the area where this grape reaches its ultimate expression.
For a well-priced example of a wine produced here try the Domaine Andre Neveu Sancerre.
For the very best of the wines Sancerre has to offer, seek out those from Francois Cotat and Edmond Vatan.
It should also be remembered that Sancerre also permits the production of red wines from the Pinot Noir grape and some excellent examples of Pinot Noir can be found here including the silky cuvees from Daniel Chotard. It is also permitted to produce rose wines from Pinot Noir in this appellation.
The village of Sancerre and some interesting wine information relating to the Sancerre appellation is included in the book called The most beautiful Wine Villages of France which you can order from by clicking on the link below.
