Wine of the Week – Domaine de la Perriere Sancerre, 2013

Summer’s the time for crisp white wines and this lovely Domaine de la Perriere Sancerre 2013 from Saget La Perriere is an outstanding way to celebrate the season. It’s from the Loire Valley in France where the family-owned winery is now in its ninth generation.
You’ll think of summer flowers as you sip this Sauvignon Blanc with its minerality, hints of citrus fruits and bright golden hue. This is a wine that pairs well with seafood and shellfish, but also makes a marvelous glass by itself. The grapes are harvested by hand and mechanically each fall.
The caves of La Perriere were carved 200 million years ago and provide the perfect spot to age the wines from the estate’s 106 acres. This Sancerre is 12.5 ABV.
