2019 Domaine Jean-Paul Balland Sancerre Rouge
The Domaine is now run by Jean-Paul's daughters Isabelle and Elise. Isabelle is a Burgundy trained oenologist and it certainly shows with this bright ruby red pinot noir. Very accessible with juicy fresh berries and a touch of spice and vanilla hint. Nicely balanced with fine integrated tannins and a refreshing acidity.
