The SANCERRE ROSE WINE 2016 comes exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape variety only cultivated on 1.75 hectares on calcareous-clay soils.
Vinified « en gris » which means that the grapes are pressed as soon as harvested, it is pressed in a pneumatic press and separated from the musts.
The temperature during the fermentation is carefully controlled then filtered through Kieselguhr as for the white wines.
Appearance: Clear to the eye with a tender rose coloured appearance and grey flecks.
Nose: The initial impression on the nose is delicate and intense, with primary aromas of flowers (orange blossom) and fruits (currant, citrus).
Second nose: Upon aeration, a discreet intensity with complex and gourmand aromas (white peach, fresh almond and litchi).
Palate: The precise and lively attack brings on the mid palate the crispness of ripe fruits (white peach, cherry) and flowers (iris, peonies) tinted of spices (pepper).
End of palate: Intensity, delicacy and precision
Balance and freshness: precision winemaking for a great rose wine.
It is at its best when drunk with starters cooked out of meat, liver and pork meat dishes. His wedding with white meat is very pleasant.
It is presented in transparent bottles. It should be served at a temperature of 8-10°C.
