Producer: Domaine Sautereau
The Sautereau family has been producing wine for nine generations in the village of Crézancy, seven kilometres from the town of Sancerre. The winery is now run by David Sautereau, who makes modern, attractive wines that offer excellent value for money. David’s 22 hectares are spread over the villages of Crézancy, Bué and Sancerre, which ensures that the best of the Sancerre appellation is available for his blend.
David’s careful and orderly approach in his small, immaculate cellar is reflected in the purity of his wines. The range of soils gives many blending components, ensuring that his Sancerre has a touch of minerality on the palate that combines nicely with the aromatic gooseberry-fruit character on the nose. David’s Sancerre Rosé, made solely from Pinot Noir, is pale salmon in colour, with bright strawberry and raspberry fruit aromas. David’s precise and expressive single vineyard Sancerre ‘Le Vignoble de Sarrottes’ and his Sancerre Rouge are made from Pinot Noir grown on chalky soils with iron-rich content. It has a bright, sappy character which is nicely rounded by supple tannins.
A pale salmon pink in colour, with intense aromas of strawberry, raspberry and a touch of citrus fruit on the nose. Full-bodied on the palate with refreshing acidity, this wine has a long and elegant finish.
