Sancerre wines

Sancerre Wine

La Tour restaurant, at 31 Place de la Halle, on the top of the hill of Sancerre is a great place to sample a bottle of the region’s finest, as you can simultaneously enjoy a vista of the vines that created it, which is rather uplifting. Young chef Baptiste Fournier cooks contemporary cuisine with fresh, local ingredients and considerable flair. Refreshingly, vegetables are given prime billing alongside some great fish and deft meat dishes. It may be a 14th century building, but this is very much a 21st century destination diner and we commend it to you.

André Vatan, now aided by son Antoine as well as his wife Arielle (they must have fun opening their post and I didn’t even mention siblings Aimée and Adrian!), is one of Yapp Brothers’ longest-serving suppliers. We have been shipping his acclaimed Sancerre ‘Les Perriers’ since he was a young lad helping out his father Jean and we haven’t missed a vintage since.
