Beauty of Loire
Domaine de la Perriere Sancerre
Sancerre is Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley in France. I visited the Loire Valley a few years back. We spent our day touring the many chateaux and drinking wine.
When I have this wine, I think back to the gorgeous landscape and history of this region. This Sancerre is a beautiful, acidic, crisp, refreshing wine. It is a very easy drinking and has notes of melon, slight flint and grass. Whenever I have Sauvignon Blanc I’m always blown away by the powerful aromas.
I know this wine would be enjoyed outside on a warm spring day. I also think it would be a wonderful compliment to many foods such as Chinese or Mexican.
How did I enjoy it? My husband and I had a rare opportunity to get out without kids in the afternoon. We found a great spot to kick back with some snacks and this refreshing Sancerre.
