Domaine Serge Laloue Sancerre Rouge, 2016
Using sustainable organic methods, siblings Franck and Christine Laloue have produced this excellent red Sancerre. The light bodied Pinot Noir is fruity and concentrated yet very approachable.
Domaine Serge Laloue
Domaine Serge Laloue is operated by the brother and sister team of Franck and Christine who continue to perpetuate the work originally undertaken by their father, Serge, in the 1960's. The estate consists of 21 hectares of vines, essentially located in the commune of Thauvenay, 5 kilometres from the town of Sancerre. 16 hectares are planted with Sauvignon Blanc which produce our white Sancerre. The remaining 5 hectares are planted with Pinot Noir grapes that go into the production of their rosé and red Sancerres.

Wines from the Loire Valley vary wildly in terms of their style and flavour – in part due to the vast number of appellations and large areas planted under vine. From tangy, minerally, terroir-driven Sauvignon whites, to juicy and distinctive Pinot Noir reds and roses, and a great deal of specialities in between. Brimming with innovative producers aiming to produce wines as naturally as possible, there is much joy to be found in Loire Valley wines – we recommend you dive in head first to sample the delights on offer today!
