Lauverjat Moulin des Vrillères, Sancerre Rouge 2006

The region of Sancerre in the French Loire Valley is probably more famous for its white Sauvignon Blanc wines rather than its reds, but that doesn't mean it can't produce a decent Pinot Noir, which is exactly what this is.

This is a light, refreshing Pinot, and slightly chilled and on its own, it would be perfect on warm summer day. The nose and flavours are wonderful, think strawberries and cream.

I'm also a big fan of Sancerre rosé, also made from Pinot Noir. If you haven't tried it, you should.
