Loire Valley, Sancerre
Domaine Terres Blanches, Rose, Sancerre, Loire Valley, France, 750ml
The Pinot Noir grapes for this amber rosé are grown in vineyards mainly in the district of Bué, the terroirs are described as ‘caillotes’, hard limestone, and ‘terres blanches’, white stones. The juice for the wine is obtained by direct cold pressing. This is clarified by static settling and fermented at low temperature in temperature-controlled vats. This rosé then undergoes a few months ageing in vat to keep its fruity character. Amber in colour, with flamingo-pink highlights; it shows redcurrant and berry fruit on the nose and a finessed, drawn-out finish.
