The Sancerre rouge presents itself expressively and excitingly in the nose, as first one perceives clear incense notes, followed by the smell of dried herbs like rosemary, thyme, juniper berry and clove. Floral scents like ivy, nettle and elderflower are also detectable. With the necessary oxygen contact, fine fruit aromas of cherry, cassis and wild raspberry join in, adding a feminine and fruity touch to its cool, distinctive and fresh attack.
Animating and refreshing, it presents itself on the tongue. Clear mineral notes, a fine herbal spice and a stimulating acidity and a moderate alcohol determine the taste picture. A red wine, which harmonizes slightly chilled excellently with aromatic dishes and fish.
