23 Sep Fiou Sancerre is Back!
Sancerre is a very signature style of Sauvignon Blanc. It doesn’t have the citrusy notes of Bordeaux or the strong grassy notes of New Zealand. Sancerre Sauvignon Blancs are like what Chablis is to Chardonnay. The wine is elegant and high-acid, with strong mineral components and lot of subtlety. This crisp, delicious Sancerre is peaking right now. It’s so annoying when you’re expected to hold a wine for a few years when all you want to do is pop that cork! Well that’s not the case here. This wine is ready to go and is showing its best right now.
2014 Gerard Fiou Sancerre
On Sale $19.99
Tight, crisp and with herbal as well as citrus flavors, this wine comes from flinty soil. That creates all the intensity, the tautness, the mineral texture and the ability for the wine to age. True to style, this wine will need to be kept, so don’t drink before 2017.
