Lucien Crochet Sancerre Pinot Rose 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Fine, fresh berries and cherries dance with citrus, watermelon, sun-warmed earth, crushed flowers and minerals in this salmon-pink rose wine. Luscious yet vibrant, this wine balances its fruit-rich nose with piquant acidity and a bone-dry finish. This mono-varietal Pinot Noir comes from one of Sancerre's most dedicated producers, Lucien Crochet. Crochet's winemaker, the founder's son Gilles Crochet, who assumed control of the estate after his father stepped down, chooses whole bunch fermentation for this wine, macerating on the skins briefly and then fermenting with only natural yeasts, and aging primarily in stainless steel with a small portion of barriques. Deeply delicious and fresh, this classic rose will please any serious wine-lover.
