Pre-phylloxera, Sancerre's production was dedicated primarily to Pinot Noir, which was then replaced by vigorous Sauvignon Blanc. Slowly but surely, Sancerre became synonymous with Sauvignon Blanc, rendering wines with nervy tension and steeliness. Still, there is a small production of Sancerre Rouge mucking around, which makes it as rare as hen's teeth. Crunchy cranberries and strawberries coupled with an average 6 months in old French barrels, La Perrière's Sancerre Rouge is moreish and will be a chilled wine buddy to bring to the common on a warm summer's day.

La Perrière at Sancerre is something special. La Perrière’s vineyards, located in Verdigny-en-Sancerre, extend over 5 different districts and produce prestigious Sancerre appellation wines. La Perrière possesses a unique, single 10 hectares block of vineyards planted on flint soils, known to be the most suitable for the production of fine Sauvignon Blanc wines but only dedicate 5 hectares to Pinot Noir. But there's something more... the winery tanks are in a cave! A huge, naturally forming cave. It's a heck of a site (and a sight), almost as breathtaking as their incredible wines.
