NOTES: Sancerre is known far and wide for its white wine (the true ancestral home of sauvignon blanc), but 10% of the wine from here is red—made from the pinot noir grape. Light and delicious with the same sort of minerality and crisp acidity that mark this northern, cool-climate’s other wines; the Beau Regard does more than just bat her pretty eyes! Lovely with red fruit and a hint of oak on the nose, it offers a light and juicy palate and just a touch of tannin. Enjoy with salmon, roast chicken, or simply to sip!
VARIETY: Pinot Noir
REGION: Sancerre, Loire Valley, France
