Rosé Wine

Sancerre rosé is made from Pinot Noir. The grapes are pressed immediately after being harvested. After 48 hours of settling, the must is racked and left to ferment in tanks. Fermentation temperatures are closely monitored and the process lasts several weeks to give as much aromatic complexity as possible to the wine. No yeast is added to the musts. It is the indigenous yeasts in the grapes that initiate fermentation. The first racking takes place in January or February. After bentonite fining, performed in order to remove unstable proteins and polish its aromas, the wine can be filtered and bottled.

Direct pressing of the Pinot Noir grape lends a unique salmon pink colour to our Sancerre Rosé along with lightness and elegance.
