Vinification Details

  • Our vineyards receive the utmost attention throughout the year in respect of nature. The plots are harvested with great care, at perfect maturity, so that each terroir can be revealed. After an extraction at low pressure, the juices ferment for 3-4 weeks at a controlled temperature. An ageing on fine lees as well as a very light filtration allow us to offer you the best of Sancerre's terroirs!

History

  • Nestled in the heart of the Sancerre appellation, the Domaine Fournier Père et Fils winery goes back generations of winemakers since 1926. Carefully selected from vineyards spread over the 3 terroirs of the appellation, the Sancerre Finest delights with its precision and its regularity. Made with great care and attention to detail, Sancerre Finest represents the best alliance of the terroirs.

Regional Information

  • International capital of Sauvignon Blanc, Sancerre can date its vinous history back to the 6th century and is the most prestigious and renowned appellation of the Loire. Its inimitable style is born from the magic alliance of this varietal and the 3 unique soils of the appellation: flint, pebbly limestone and Kimmeridgian marl.

A little disappointed in comparison

3 stars

Was a little disappointed with tesco brand as was on the Sharp side compared to my normal glass of sancerre

Stunning

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

One of the best whites I have tasted. I like a light, not oaky white - some may not like that but for me it is absolutely perfect. A clean, pure wine - no hint of headache the next day if one too many glasses drunk!

Delicious

I like the cool fresh fruity taste of this wine with smoked salmon &horseradish

Truly Finest Sancerre

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

A superb classical Sancerre and a refreshing conterpoint to New Zealand Sauvignon. The colour is pale lemon-green, with a complex nose of candied and ripe citrus fruit and white flowers. The palate is well-rounded and precise, with keen acidity (this is Sancerre after all) but with the gooseberry and lemon fruits coming to the fore. Overall, this is a well-poised and elegant Sancerre, which reminds us that France can still compete in the Sauvignon Blanc stakes. I tasted this alongside Malaysian Chicken Curry which worked reasonably well, but I think the supreme match would be simple baked white fish. Fantastique!

Excellent

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

I'm surprised by the negativity from some other reviewers. I found this to be exactly what it should be - full of wonderful fruit, with 'just right' minerality. This is the subtle end of the Sauvignon Blanc spectrum - a million miles from the brash New World versions - but quite delightful in its Old World charm. I would definitely recommend it.

Good quality at a good price

4 stars

Review from tesco.com

I have come to recognise the Finest range as being solid and reliable, and at a sensible price. This Sancerre just confirms my views!

Mature, under stated

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

Very pleasant white wine with a subtle dryness. Ideal with fish and white meat.

Very good

Review from tesco.com

I marginally prefer a sancerre over a chablis when drinking whites; and this is a nice example.

Variety across years

3 stars

Review from tesco.com

Its the 2012 that won the silver award at IWSC. From reviews here and and on other wines, its clear there are changes in the quality across the years which is generally not being reflected by changes in price. I found the 2013 to be passable but not worth even the £9.99 (reduced price) currently available.
