Domaine Balland-Chapuis 'Le Chatillet' Rouge
£22.50 (inc VAT)
Sancerre, red, really? Loire?s answer to Burgundy at half the price.
Sancerre, that's white, right? Well, not always. There's a red version, rarer than hen's teeth, but every inch as elegant, crisp, mineral and delicious. Oh look, here’s one… grab it. Wonderful lightly chilled.
Owned by The Saget Family, who were integral in making Cotteaux du Giennois be awarded the AOC in 1998.
