2020 Aurore Dezat "Evidence" Sancerre Rouge

SKU #1694795

The wines of Aurore Dezat are a regular feature in our wine club offerings, and her vibrant Sancerre is an easy favorite among K&L staff as well. Aurore makes wine on her family estate in Sury-en-Vaux, which was established by her grandfather. Before Aurore took over the estate, most of the fruit was sold off through négociants. She has slowly phased out the négociant contracts. The estate is home to more than just vines, with grain crops and farm animals also finding a home there, but for Aurore, the focus is on the wine. She farms organically and emphasizes the importance of the three soil types present on the estate. With her grapes growing on limestone, flint (or silex), and clay, Aurore can produce wines that have a real depth of character.

The "Evidence" is the tete de cuvee from Aurore Dezat and David Girard. This pinot reaches next level status for Sancerre rouge with its sumptuous red cherry and vibrant floral notes. A touch of oak spice rounds out the palate giving that classic Burgundian feel. The Evidence proves my thesis that you can find great Burgundian pinots from outside of Burgundy for a fraction of the price if you just know where to look. Sancerre, we have our eye on you!

​ Philip Roufail ​ Domaine des Chasseignes is the organic Loire Valley wine estate of Aurore Dezat and her husband David Girard. Located in the village of Sancerre, world-renowned for its distinctive mineral-driven Sauvignon Blanc, Dezat makes some of K&L's most delicious direct imports. What many people do not realize is that one red grape is also allowed to be grown in Sancerre - Pinot Noir. The AOC's Sancerre Rouge is always 100% Pinot Noir and exemplifies the terroir's unique limestone, silex (flint), and clay soils. If you're a Red Burgundy lover who wants to discover alternative Old World style Pinot Noir, the 2020 "Evidence" will be a revelation. Deep, rich, and bursting with dark red fruit, minerals, spice, power, and structure, it's no surprise this is Aurore's prestige Sancerre Rouge. Bonus: an outstanding food wine - pair with great stuff like salmon, veal, and ashy goat cheese.

There is no evidence that this bottling is anything less than delicious! Dark red colour in the glass, with warm earth, dark cherry and currant scents. On the palate, lightly spicy with mellow oak, dark red cherries, light chalk and a touch of nutmeg. A lot going on in the glass with this one!

What a great wine from Aurore Dezat! This charming Pinot is characterized by juicy acidity, spice, and generous brambly fruit. It has a beautiful texture, with layers of earthy minerality and a long finish. Priced at $29.99, it is an excellent value, and would pair wonderfully with your next charcuterie plate. Recommended!
