Francois Crochet, Sancerre Rosé

Write a Review

Vintage: 2022

Varietals: Pinot Noir

Farming: Organic

The flavors are bold, focusing on dark cherry, watermelon, and macerated wild red berry fruit with a nicely mineral edge and just a tiny touch of freshening tannins. The balance of fruit, acidity, texture and minerality is pretty much perfect.

The grapes were hand-picked. Whole bunches were transferred to pneumatic presses by means of a belt in order to avoid bruising the skins. There is a static settling before racking. Fermentation takes 3 to 4 weeks. Aged in stainless steel for 6 months.
