Tasting Notes

Sancerre is the biggest name associated with the Loire Valley and is arguably the natural home of the Sauvignon Blanc grape.

Made by the Fournier family, this is a beautifully made wine with intense citrus and gooseberry flavours that are quietly powerful.

Brilliant with goats cheese.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2013 vintage, Jane MacQuitty said: "Tesco's gorgeous, steely, gooseberry-charged top Loire sauvignon, from the consistently good Fournier Père et Fils stable is a tricky Loire vintage, but well worth its price."

Jane MacQuitty - Weekend, The Times 06/09/2014

Of the 2013 vintage, Jamie Goode said: "It seems ages since I've recommended a Sancerre - the most famous village for sauvignon blanc from the Loire - but this is a good one, with lovely stylish flavours of citrus fruit and flinty minerals, plus a touch of herbs."

Jamie Goode - S Magazine, Sunday Express 07/09/2014
