Sancerre

19.50

Those who know wine know Sancerre. One of the first wines accredited with AOC status in 1936, the French rate this crisp, vibrant wine in high esteem. And so do we. So we added it to our list for you this Winter.

What makes Sancerre so popular? Perhaps it’s the appealing mix of tangy citrus and sweeter melon flavours followed by the long and focused finish. Or maybe the vibrant aromas of gooseberries, grass and minerals. It’s such a glorious drink you’ll want to come down early off the pistes and open a bottle.

So what should you drink it with? This wine pairs well with all our fish dishes, canapés, starters and chicken dishes.

More Information

Would you like a little wine knowledge to impress your ski friends and family with? Oh, go on then. Huski delivers.

Sancerre is part of the “central vineyards” of the Loire Valley, so named not because they are in the center of the Loire but rather because they are nearly in the center of France. Together with neighboring Pouilly-Fumé, the region makes up the eastern most extension of the Loire Valley. The area is more than 300 miles (483 kilometers) from the Atlantic Coast and the Loire region of Muscadet, and is actually closer to the Champagne wine region than it is to the Middle Loire city of Tours and the Vouvray and Chinon AOCs
