For this tasting note, we’d like to pay homage to the greatest television show in the history of motion picture, The Great British Bake Off. Not only is it a faultlessly entertaining hour of television but it’s also taught us so much, for example, that it seems Noel Fielding is able to act relatively normal for an hour a week, before an impression of a Victorian Cockney Gangster with a giant polo encircling his eye bursts out of him like avant-garde appendicitis.

It also taught us to not over egg the pudding, otherwise your cake will be rubbery and suffer from ‘soggy-bottom syndrome.’ Advice that Pierre-Jean Sauvion took onboard when vinifying this Sancerre. He doesn’t over-press, over-extract or smother the wine in oak, covering up the classic aromatics. Pierre-Jean just lets the purity of the fruit speak for itself, displaying distinct notes of gooseberry, grass, elderflower and blackcurrant leaf that resolve to a long steely finish. Dare we say it deserves a famous Paul Hollywood handshake…
Pierre-Jean Sauvion is a third-generation winemaker in this region and is a specialist in producing crisp whites, juicy roses and crunchy reds from the Loire Valley. The Sauvion group boast 8 grape-harvest and winemaking centres in Val de Loire. With nearly 450 viticulturist partners and suppliers, they operate with 1,000 hectares of vineyards in the regions of Nantes, Haut-Poitou and Sancerre. Maison Lacheteau supervises around 100 carefully selected domains, covering all the appellations in Val de Loire.
