Waitrose Sancerre La Franchotte
Waitrose Sancerre 'La Franchotte' is made in partnership with Joseph Mellot in the village of Sancerre in the Central Vineyards of the Loire Valley. They have blended grapes from their own vineyards and from other parcels planted on different soils in the Sancerre appellation to add an extra dimension to this wine. Classic Sauvignon, with pure, intense flavours of gooseberries and a hint of apricot, mineral and floral notes and lovely zesty acidity. Its flinty elegance balances the weighty, ripe fruit to give a deliciously complex wine. Best served with fish, white meat, vegetarian dishes such as asparagus risotto or goat's cheese; equally as a refreshing and revitalising aperitif. Enjoy alcohol in moderation.
