2019 Aurore Dezat Sancerre Rouge

SKU #1515494

Typically when you think Sancerre, you think crisp and chalky white wine. But the region also produces phenomenal Pinot Noir. One of the aspects of Sancerre that makes for great Sauvignon Blanc is the limestone and flint soils, which lend depth of minerality and gorgeous aromatics. These same soil characteristics also make for incredible Pinot Noir with plenty of depth and personality. One of our best new direct-import producers in Sancerre, Aurore Dezat, makes just such a wine. If you love silky, round Pinot Noir with gorgeous dark cherry notes and layers of spice, framed by bright acidity and great mineral depth, this wine is for you. You might be surprised to find such a luxurious and open Pinot Noir from a cold region known for tangy, minerally whites, but here we have it. Aurore took over the family domaine in Sury-en-Vaux with the 2011 vintage and has worked hard to overhaul the entire production. Her wines are clean, well-balanced and more modern in style than those of some of her neighbors, and they were an instant hit with the K&L staff. Although the 2019 Aurore Dezat Sancerre Rouge is still young, it shows beautifully once you give it a little air in the glass or in a decanter. This red would make a great pairing with roast game birds and of course any hard, nutty cheese.

The reds of Sancerre have seen a wonderful evolution in flavor and intensity over the last decade. Part of it is due to climate change but the other part - they've just gotten better at making it. Aurore Dezat's rouge (which like all Sancerre Rouge is 100% Pinot Noir) is brimming with bright red cherry, pomegranate, peppery spices and pretty red flowers. Put a light chill on this and it will be the perfect foil to any weeknight dining from roast chicken, take-out Chinese or my Mom's classic ground beef tacos.
