Tasting Notes

This winery was founded in 1930 and since then four generations of the family have run the estate. The estate has limestone and calcarous clay soils that wonderfully influence the character of the grapes grown there. The Sancerre is consistently delicious, with citrus, chalky mineral and light floral notes. Its dry finish complements seafood and cheese beautifully. K&L French Regional buyer Keith Mabry says: "The Cherrier to me is always one of the biggest crowd pleasing Sancerres/Sauvignon Blancs from anywhere in the world."

    Another exceptional vintage for this excellent Loire Valley estate has produced a Sauvignon Blanc of brilliant character and an elegant presentation. Aromas of honey-dew melon, lime zest, and fig-like qualities leads to a rich, yet snappish, clean, and crisp set of flavors across the palate, with undertones of a chalky, slate-like mineral nature. The finish is refreshing and mouthwatering. The Bean has demanded that I bring home at least several cases of this wonderful Gem to to serve with our shellfish dinners or to simply have with an aperitif plate in the afternoon. A MOUTHWATERING VALUE!. …A K&L WINE MERCHANTS’ DIRECT IMPORT… ***** 12.5% ABV *****

    I love new vintage of Cherrier! Super delicious, classic Sancerre. Pure minerality with very bright crunchy acidity and vivid, slightly tropical fruit expression. Very impressive for Sancerre under $20! Very fresh and vibrant.

    A refreshing and bright Sancerre from one of our consistently solid producers. This Sancerre has a fresh lemon zest quality, a present but not overwhelming note of white flowers, and a slightly vegetal green note. It's got a racy acidity and finishes very dry. For those of you who like your white wines crisp, this is a must try. This would be lovely with seafood, chicken and hearty salads. Personally, I want to have a glass with a big bowl of steamed mussels. Delicious!
