Domaine Jérôme Godon Sancerre "Elegance" 2017 - Red
Jérôme Godon's red Sancerre is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes. The harvest is done by hand and the winemaking is almost a craft since only a small part of total production consists of red wine. The wine is unlike the Burgundian Pinot noir wines not stored in oak barrels which gives a fruity flavor with finesse. This 2012 is according to Jerome himself the best vintage ever.

Presentation of the vineyard
Jérôme Godon belongs to the younger generation of winemakers who wanted to develop and improve the family winemaking. The family Godon has cultivated wine in the Sancerre wine district more or less since ever, but it is only when Jerome took over that the quality and innovation has become an obsession. With an effortless approach to things and a good dose of professionalism Jérôme produces both red and white Sancerre wines with great elegance.
