Staff Pick Notes

Here is a radiant, soulful Pinot Noir from Centre Loire. The reds of Sancerre represent less than one-fifth of total production so they're not on most consumers' radar, but they're improving steadily and gaining more recognition. A plus side to being semi-invisible is that these are excellent wines that are well priced. The Lauverjat family have been in the village of Sury-en-Vaux for generations and the winery is currently headed by husband and wife Christian and Karine. They favor minimal intervention, and are working towards a system of completely sustainable viticulture. This wine is a nice representation of their ethos. Lithe red berries, dried leaves, and a delicate nutty quality. A finely grained tannic structure and moderately high acidity. Harmonious in every way and absolutely delectable.

As diverse as Loire wines are, one day soon you'll know your Melon de Bourgogne from your Romorantin.
