Domaine Hubert Brochard Sancerre Rouge 2019
Domaine Hubert Brochard produces classically styled Sancerre blanc, rosé, and rouge from their family-owned winery in Chavignol. The domaine is now run by the fifth and sixth generation of Brochards with 152 acres under vine in Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, and Vin de Pays du Val de Loire. The domaine is spread across eight communes. Sancerre Rouge comes from seven different communes in areas with deeper soils better suited to Pinot Noir. The average vine age is 40 years and harvest is done entirely by hand. The grapes are destemmed and receive a brief cold maceration before fermentation in stainless-steel tanks. The wine is aged for one year in used French oak barrels before bottling.
