Staff Pick Notes

5 Words: Fresh, Stemmy, Raspberry, Cherry, Earth. 100% Pinot Noir. Lauverjat is very much a family affair in the small villages of Sury-en-Vaux and Sainte-Gemme-en-Sancerrois within the appellation of Sancerre. Karine’s son Kevin now helps her husband Christian in the winery, and their daughter Suzie helps Karine run a gift shop in town. The family not only farms grapes, but wheat, hops, and rapeseed as well. They keep things pretty simple, purchasing grapes from friends in harsh years, farming sustainably without herbicides or pesticides, and making some of the best value driven Sancerre in all 3 colors. This Sancerre Rouge is light bodied and charmingly reserved. It spends 10 months aging in neutral barrels before bottling.

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