girl meets wine sancerre

Not exactly top choice when it comes to converting a red wine enthusiast, but this Sancerre has a certain charm. Soft and delicate with citrusy notes, a refreshing finish, and a nice bit of history to go along with it. Domaine Fouassier’s got its fair share of credentials: it’s one of the oldest winegrowing families in the Loire Valley, it was first in Sancerre to develop single-vineyard wines, and it’s one of only three domaines in the region that’s been certified in organic and biodynamic winemaking. Extra bonus points in favor of this white: a Sancerre is not as commonplace as a Chardonnay and some call it the ‘white Beaujolais’ – and come on, who doesn’t love a good Beaujolais? I’m not a full convert just yet, but who knows? Time will tell.
