Some people say this is the most perfect expressions of Sauvignon Blanc flavour.  The town sits on a hill, surveying the vineyards that run down from it in rows of red, whites and roses in the fourteen communes that qualify to wear the Sancerre name.  The whites have been a formal French appellation since 1936, the reds – mostly Pinot Noirs - and roses were formally recognised in 1959.

Some of the vineyards worth checking out include Domaine Vacheron, Henri Bourgeois, Vacheron, Alphonse Mellot and Vincent Pinard.  

Accompany your wine with goat cheese from Chavignol.
