Loire Valley Wine
The Sancerre region of France is located in the Loire valley. This region makes red, white, and rosť wines that are light and easy to drink.
White sancerre comes from the Sauvignon Blanc grape
. This makes a semi-dry, fresh, fruity white with vegetable flavors. This goes well with most appetizers, as well as oysters and fish. Sauvignon blanc should be served at around 52F and should be drunk within a few years.
The rosť and red Sancerre are made from Pinot Noir
, and therefore is pretty light and fruity. Flavors of violet and cherry are typical. They go with light dishes - chicken, pork, eggplant. This should be served around 61F.
