Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
A wine with an expressive aroma of gooseberry and green pepper, an intensity of vibrant sauvignon fruit, and a rich and complex flavour.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 3 years
Fournier are wine growers making classic Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé in their family winery. The Fournier family estate has grown from five hectares in 1950 to 60 hectares today. The wines can be described as herby, gunflint-smoky, combining appealing aromas with a refreshing crispness.
Situated on the banks of the River Loire to the East of Bourges, the Sancerre vineyards cover an area of around 2.350 hectares. Three types of soil predominate in the Sancerre region : - clay and limestone white soils, the "Terres Blanches", found in the hills furthest west. - Pebbly limestone soils, known locally as the "Caillottes" and cilicious-clay soils, underlying the hills further east.

To return to Sancerre after a few years of trying other wines, it was a delight to be reminded why this wine is so acclaimed as a superb wine.
