It has the crisp acidity of the cool-climate Sancerre, but it also has the weight and ripeness of a fine Burgundy. The wood aging has left a spicy toasty edge to the beautiful cherry fruits and acidity. It could age for another year to be at its best. Drink from 2019. ROGER VOSS

From 66-year-old vines on limestone soils, the 2014 Sancerre En Grands Champs offers a deep, elegant and floral, as well as spicy bouquet with perfectly ripe red and dark fruit aromas.

Firm, fresh and pure on the palate, this is an excellent Pinot Noir with a firm mineral and tannic structure, but also a stunning finesse and a serious charm. The finish is stimulatingly fresh and salty, and indicates a very good aging potential.- SR
