What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

A wine made only in the finest vintages and composed of Pinot Noir harvested from the oldest vines (average age of 50 years) of the domaine. The vineyards are a mix of two terroirs: Oxfordian “caillottes” and Kimmeridgian “marne”. The grapes are entirely destemmed; there is a period of cold maceration; the fermentation extends for three weeks. Remontage and pigeage are practiced. Élevage is done in barrel: a mix of new oak (40%), oak of one year (40%) and oak of two years (20%). The wine is bottled after twenty months of élevage.

Loire Valley Wines

The Loire Valley is France’s greatest source of value for anyone looking for elegant, terroir-driven wines. Our collection celebrates the region’s great diversity, with the mineral-driven whites of Muscadet and Sancerre, the beautiful Chenin Blancs and Cabernet Francs from villages like Vouvray and Chinon, and natural wines from everywhere in the region. Sometimes wonderfully fresh and gulpable, sometimes serious and age-worthy, the prices are always very reasonable.

GUIDE TO THE WINES OF SANCERRE

Sancerre is one of France's great wines and this guide will give you all the details on what makes it so good. Sancerre comes in red, white and rose, and all three colors are delicious and fascinating and worth getting to know.
