Sancerre Rosé 2017
This Pinot Noir rosé takes rarity to a whole new level. The vast majority of Sancerre is planted with Sauvignon Blanc. Only 20% is dedicated to Pinot Noir and much of that is made into red wine, leaving only minuscule quantities for rosé. André Dezat et Fils have a tiny two-hectare plot – that’s about two football pitches – of some of the finest Pinot Noir in the entire region and they gently craft it into this exquisite Sancerre Rosé.
Intensely refreshing like a coupe of strawberry and raspberry sorbet topped with frozen redcurrants, a twist of pink grapefruit peel and a whisper of Chantilly cream. An artful match to poached salmon, asparagus, summer salads, al fresco dining and, somewhat surprisingly, exotic curries.
The Dezat family can trace their winemaking lineage back to 1550, making them one of the most respected producers in this iconic region. Rosé just doesn’t get much better or rarer than this.
