Description

Sancerre is a phenomenal pairing partner for many Asian cuisines, but is all too often overlooked. Thanks to its chalky soils (the same that are found in Champagne!), Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre has incredible, expressive minerality and acidity which are fantastic with everything from Malay and Thai fare to Cantonese and many Japanese dishes.

Tasting Notes


EYE:
Brilliant, pale straw yellow with green reflections
NOSE:
Ripe citrus and stunning white floral aromas are framed with flint and a hint of fresh tarragon. A classic example of Sancerre from a warm vintage.
MOUTH:
Racy and elegant, with a restrained power, this Sancerre is dominated by tart grapefruit, lemon and ripe star fruit and passion fruit flavours. It finishes savoury, dry, with a pronounced minerality and vibrant acidity that leaves the mouth-watering.

Food Pairing

Green papaya salad
Pad Thai
Green Curry
Dim sum, especially with seafood or vegetables such as har gaw, siu mai, and hai to si, or vegetable potstickers
Sushi, accompanied with wasabi
