2013 Maison Bonheur Sancerre Rouge

This Pinot Noir, from the Sancerre appellation of the Loire Valley, is refined, complex and sophisticated. High-toned aromatics are followed by vibrant sour cherry and cranberry on the palate. This is a wine made for the dinner table, as food will bring its elevated acidity into balance. When pairing, look to feathered game, pork and mushroom dishes.
