Finding Sancerre for less $25 these days is kinda like hunting for truffles - its extremely difficult, but if you are successful you are in for a treat...and we are in for a treat today!
Sancerre is a funny thing, 100% Sauvignon Blanc for the white wines, theoretically, a bit softer and rounder than their next-door neighbor Pouilly Fume (though I defy anyone to really tell the difference outside of people who live there), but more and more tasting like something from the New World.
How, you ask?
It’s okay, let’s just say you asked. With climate change, the wines are getting even rounder and fruitier than before – I’m not sure that’s a bad thing, the wine part of it anyway. But whereas Olivier Richard’s family legacy in the southern Rhone has been, like all wineries down there, sometimes threatened by increasing temperatures and climate extremes, other places have benefited. Richard’s Rhone wine-making grandfather, family lore says, always wanted to grow Sauvignon Blanc and so, as Richard has grown a small negociant business that expanded to include wines from Sancerre, he had to name the wines after his grandfather. Thus it is Lucien Reymond Sancerre, not Olivier Richard Sancerre. Grandpa’s smiling somewhere.
If Sauvignon Blanc is your thing (and remember, warm weather is coming 😁), you'll want to try a bottle of this!
Happy Thursday y'all!
