Wine Down Wednesday- Sancerre

What says ‘A fantastic pairing with Chilean Sea Bass’ than a Chateau de Sancerre from Loire France? Of course I could match a few others, but this is a classic that should never be reckoned with…

Miso Marinated Chilean Sea Bass over Garlic Collard Greens is a great dish to prepare, and not so very difficult either!

This fish was sweet, but yet density and flavor of the sea bas was a great match with the bitter garlic flavor of the sauteed collard greens, a dish my family made often in my southern childhood.

Chateau de Sancerre, Loire France, 07- This Sancerre is light to medium in color with a light yellow and silver core and displays bright aromas on the nose with notes of baking bread, grapefruit, lemon rind and lime skin. The palate is mouth watering, yet elegant with strong citrus character tempered by earthy mineral-edged flavors as well as hints of petrol and fresh cut grass. Medium bodied, refreshing and satisfying with a zesty, clean finish.
