This weeks Wine of the Week is a 2016 Domaine André Vatan “Les Charmes” Sancerre. This rich white wine has notes of muskmelon, guava, cantaloupe, sweet snap pea and a combination of florals. The finish is vibrant, bright and fresh. If you’re a fan of Sauvignon Blanc wine from New Zealand like myself, than I bet you’ll really enjoy this wine!
We paired this wine with a lemon and herb roasted chicken, sautéed mushrooms, a kale and apple salad and challah (bread).
This bottle was priced at 24.99 and can be purchased through different wine searcher sites. If you can’t find it in your area, I would just research buying a different bottle of Sancerre from the Loire Valley region of France, which is where this is from.
