It’s true, when it comes to Rosé in France, Provence seemingly takes all the fame.
Don’t get me wrong, we love the great Rosé of Provence, but there is something about the pink wines of the Loire Valley that keeps us coming back for more.
We are very excited to introduce you to the exceptional Sancerre Rosé from Gérard Boulay. What is largely a white wine appellation devoted to Sauvignon Blanc, Sancerre also produces a beautiful expression of Pinot Noir, both in red and Rosé form.
As we mentioned in a previous newsletter, Gérard Boulay is one of the best, artisan producers in the region of Sancerre. Based in the village of Chavignol, this small 9 hectare estate is sought after by those that seek the best.
Boulay’s Sancerre Rosé is produced from old-vines, 35-40 years in age, planted in clay, just outside his home in Chavignol. This is a direct press Rosé, fermented and aged in tank, with natural yeast, and minimal usage of SO2.
Young and vibrant, this explodes from the glass with notes of lemon and orange zest, cherry skin and a “flinty” minerality. Mouth coating, incredibly vibrant and fresh on the palate, this beautiful Rosé is a must to buy by the case, as you can drink some now, and over the new handful of summers.
Only 200 cases of this Rosé is produced annually, so don’t miss it!
