Imagine a leisurely early autumn horse ride through an open field in scenic Sancerre, with rolling green hills and hazy twilight on the horizon, as the sun sets behind you. This is that kind of wine – light, vaguely fruity, and very drinkable. There’s a note of leather in the nose married with tangy cheese – Pecorino Romano? Blueberries without the sweetness or acidity dominate the flavor profile. Pairing options are nearly endless due to this wine’s accessibility, though I’d recommend a dish that picks up on the wine’s aroma. Authentic Cacio e Pepe anyone?
