Sancerre is located about 2 hours south of Paris. Sancerre’s wine production first started in the 11th century. In 1936, Sancerre was officially added to the noble family of great French wines with its addition to the appellation of guaranteed origin (AOC). The principle varietals of Sancerre are Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Sauvignon Blanc is particularly well-suited to the region of Sancerre thanks to a temperate micro-climate and stony, warm and well-drained soil. According to most connoisseurs, nowhere else does Sauvignon Blanc attain such vigor, such verve and fullness and such inimitable finesse than in Sancerre.
