The legs appear as a beautiful red currant colour with sharp and brilliant reflections. Exceptionally fruity, very young, and typically Sancerre, raspberry, peach. Very aromatic on a red fruit key. Full and round, it shows much sucrosity in attack. This wine attenuates gradually, expands promptly and is supported by a balanced tannic point. Powerful, it opens finally on fruity notes (blackcurrant, raspberry) and is prolonged with the taste of citrus fruits with a very beautiful aromatic persistence.
It is excellent as an aperitif in the summer, it can also be paired with charcuterie, exotic dishes, spicy dishes, paella, and certain summer cuisine. It is advised to serve Rosé wine cool at approximately 10 °C. It is preferable to consume this wine within 2 years.

Bright orange-pink. Vibrant red berry and orange zest aromas are sharpened by a strong note of chalky minerality. Dry, racy and focused, offering taut strawberry and pink grapefruit flavors that gain sweetness and weight with air. Finishes with firm cut, a hint of honeysuckle and strong mineral persistence.See detailed press review
