OCTOBER 21, 2015 Wines of Quincy, France (Loire Valley)
Think you like Sancerre? On October 20th Master Sommelier Pascaline Lepeletier gave an excellent in-depth exploration of Sauvignon Blanc (young and old) from this notable appellation, the first AOC in the Loire Valley in 1936. When most people think of Sauvignon Blanc, they think Sancerre … yet Quincy produces quality wines with racy acidity. Possible reasons why it is not as popular as Sancerre can be do to early marketing efforts or uncertainty of correct pronunciation.
