Vin de France – Pinot Noir Rosé
Rosé wine in Sancerre is synonymous with pinot noir, which is far better known from Burgundy red wines, but which has its own, lighter identity in the Loire. The common denominator is great charm and elegance in the driver’s seat.
Sancerre is the name behind the Loire’s most famous wine, but is also a cozy town located near the banks of the Loire River. While everyone seems to know the white Sancerrevine, the rosé version almost seems to be an exotic rarity.
At Domaine Roger & Didier Raimbault in the catchment area of Sancerre town, viticulture has been part of the family for no less than 10 generations, stretching over 400 years. The domain owns and maintains just over 17 hectares in the municipalities of Verdigny, Sury and Vaux. Here, the lotte raisonnée concept is cultivated, where a minimum of pesticides are used in production. Almost the entire field area is on slopes that slope between 10-40%, which due to the exposure is quality-promoting.
A short maceration of the pinot noir grapes gives a delicate color and cool fermentation gives this rosé wine just the right fruitiness, where the desire for the next glass is preserved.
This Sancerre rosé offers in fragrance and taste red berries, primarily raspberries and strawberries, which through its fresh acidity maintains a nice fruit focus, helped along the way by the lime minerals that abound in
This is a nice aperitif wine, but it is also nearby to serve it for summer food; salads, willow-yourself prawns, smoked salmon and light dishes with light meat.
Should be enjoyed in large glasses at 8-10 ° now and for the next few years.
