Sancerre is less known for its Pinot, true. Yet we can describe this example as elegant and supple, with enough lifted cherries and spicy complexity to give many Burgundy producers a run for their money. From the village of Amigny, Bué in the Loire. Jean-Max Roger puts a lot of emphasis on the different soils scattered around 26 hectares of vines, rightly so. The marginal climate and elongated ripening period means that small changes in the ground, means big variance to the structure of his wines when they reach the cellar. It’s really easy to drink, with a wisp of fresh strawberry and built around a fine structure. Grilled fish or some scallops in a creamy curry sauce is what comes to mind.
