Pascal et Nicolas Reverdy Sancerre Terre de Maimbray Rose 2011
While Sancerre is usually known for its chalky white wines, Pinot Noir also grows there. The cool climate makes for elegant, lacy rosés that are mineral-driven. Located on steep hills, this family-run estate is thought to be one of the finest Sancerre producers. From old-vine Pinot Noir, the wine is a lovely faded pink, with a perfumey, floral nose and strawberry and cherry on the palate.
