100% Pinot Noir. A peerless collection of hillside vineyards around the town of Sancerre, with a mix of chalk and flint (silex) soils. Ages of the vines are 30 to 50 years. All hand-harvested. Pressed full cluster (rosé de pressurage) then fermented on indigenous yeasts. Aged in temperature-controlled stainless steel tank. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
TASTING NOTES: Aromas of red berries, blood oranges, sea salt. Tangy and lively, with great balance. Finishes clean, with light pepper notes.
From Vendor's Notes

Simply Peerless!

If variety is the spice of life, and your Rosé routine has been firmly planted in Provence (and hey, we can’t blame you!), then here’s a chance to mix it up with this charming Rosé from Sancerre. The Sancerre region is universally known for its production of Sauvignon Blanc, but some 20% is reserved for Pinot Noir, and from that a small amount of Rosé is made. Brought to you by Domaine Vacheron, a family-run affair whose vineyards lie mostly in the eastern part of Sancerre where the soils are decidedly flinty, this is a seriously delicious Rosé that might prove difficult to keep around! Compared with a typical Provencal Rosé, it has extra complexity and acid-tension. With a rosy-copper color and a nose of ripe peaches, dried apricots and rose hips, the palate has red berry flavors that take a sharp turn towards slate and minerality on the finish. For the home cook, this gastronomy-driven Rosé is one to have on hand as it’s complex layers and lifted acidity make it incredibly versatile, even for tricky pairings. To find good Sancerre Rosé, you’ll want to stick with producers known for their high standards of winemaking. Fans of Domaine Vacheron’s opulently textured Sancerre already know the masterful hand of their winemaking team -  in the world of Sancerre Rosés, this one is peerless!
