Domaine Fouassier L’Etourneau Sancerre

Pinot Noir is hand-harvested from a small, estate-owned, single-vineyard just south of the village of Sancerre. Enticing bouquet, with black tea and spice box aromas which give way to lovely dried cherry, currant, and mineral notes. Medium in body with great concentration of ripe raspberry and hints of sandalwood. The finish is smooth and lengthy featuring a subtle nuance of cedar. Forty-five-year-old vines dig their roots into chalky soils which add depth, complexity, and finesse to this elegant, lighter style red. Fermented in stainless steel at a low temperature to maintain the integrity of the fruit. Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months, the wine rests an additional 2-3 years in neutral cement tanks, plus six months in bottle. Ready to drink now, but will continue to age gracefully over the next 5 years. Compliments salmon, roast chicken, and mushrooms nicely.
