Bruno Prieur on Sancerre terroir


(posted 4/9/2009)

How do the soils of Sancerre differ? What do chalky soils in the west, pebbly soils of the slopes and flinty soils of the east contribute to Sauvignon Blanc? Bruno Prieur of Domaine de Saint Pierre shares with us his hands-on insight gleaned from a lifetime among the central vineyards of the Loire Valley. Explore Sancerre rouge and see how Pinot Noir takes to the Loire in its very own way.

Featured Wines


St Pierre Sancerre 2007 
Characteristics: Pale yellow. Spicy citrus and orchard fruits on the nose, with notes of white pepper adding energy. Tightly wound, focused grapefruit and lemongrass flavors. The finish is linear and refreshingly tangy.
- wine tasting notes by KS, July 2010

Refreshing, clean and bright as often the best Sancerre can be. The 2007 shows plenty of grapefruit, lime and peach with a little bit of ripeness on the mid-palate. While this wine sings summer tunes in the glass, it will serve well on a cool Autumn evening! -CM
