Produced from 100% Pinot Noir (estate fruit), this delightful rosé has both lovely balance and good structure. It has aromas of cherries and a touch of stone fruit leading to more cherries, red berries, soft tannins and zingy (just the right amount) acidity on the palate. Some vintages present a darker coloured wine but this rosé is always made in a dry style.
Delicious on it's own or with dishes like Szechuan Chicken, barbecued fish or a good old hamburger!
Varietal / Blend: Pinot Noir

"I come from a family of winemakers going back many generations and today i have the good fortune to own vineyards on both sides of the Loire River in the Sancerre, Pouilly Fumé and Coteaux du Giennois appellations. Our Sancerre wines are from our wineyards growing on the steep slopes surrounding the village of Sury-en-Vaux. The Pouilly Fumé wines come from our vines growing on the limestone-clay soils around the village of Saint-Martin-Sur-Nohain."
The coteaux de Saint-Père, overlooking the Loire River and the town of Cosne-sur-Loire, is the site of the Coteaux du Giennois vineyards. Pouilly Fumé, Sancerre Blanc and Coteaux du Giennois Blanc are all produced from 100% Sauvignon blanc grapes.
Sancerre Rouge and Rosé are produced from 100% Pinot noir, Coteaux du Giennois Rouge and Rosé are a delightful blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Gamay
"The soil is a part of a geological stratum formed during the secondary era of the Jurassic period and fossils of sea creatures more than 130 million years-old are still discovered in these vineyards (our personal collection is on exhibit in our cellar).
Our underground cellar is located at the foot of the superb terroir of Les Godons in the charming village of Sury-en-Vaux."
