There’s always something so inviting about a cool, crisp, bright glass of Sancerre. Maybe it’s simply the way Sauvignon Blanc is one of those refreshing white grapes. Or, perhaps it’s the grassy, herbaciousness that the wine has in principal no matter where it hails from.
Then again, maybe it’s simply that as the weather turns warmer, and as humidity returns to the air to signify the real end of winter, that the refreshing, clean and bright body found in a well made Sancerre just always hit the spot.
That’s the 2017 Chotard Sancerre to a T.
It all starts with the pale yellow color of the wine and the flavors of lemons, ripe grapfruit and a hint of lime. The minerals from the Loire valley add some stoney and flinty notes to it, all tied together in a perfect finish.
That’s why the 2017 Chotard Sancerre is today’s WineSiders’ Wine of The Day!!!
