Sancerre Rosé 2018

Region: France
Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir


Jacques Dumont Pinot Noir is grown on the hills just southeast of Sancerre and thrives on the soils of clay-limestone and flint. In order to optimize the quality of each harvest, the vines are subject to constant observation: yields are limited to ensure high-quality fruit and the maturity of each plot is evaluated to identify the optimal time for harvest. After sorting the grapes, they are pressed slowly to extract only the best fruit. The wine is then fermented for two weeks at temperatures of 55˚ to 64˚ Fahrenheit, a technique that ensures the conservation of maximum fruit flavors. The wine is aged lees until February to develop complexity and body along with a long finish. A succession of tastings then follows to determine the ideal bottling time for Sancerre.

harvest note

Having braved the unusual weather conditions, 2018 is a unique, early vintage - a vintage shaped by extraordinary extremes of weather, ranging from record levels of spring rainfall to summer heatwaves. The grapes ripened in sunny, summer conditions. Good moisture levels helped the vines cope with the dry weather, save for a few parcels with particularly free-draining soils or shallow-rooted vines.

tasting note

Salmon color, limpid and brilliant. Nice nose pinoté of red fruits and spices with a powerful and structured mouth.

food pairing

Just for sipping, great with grilled meats, summer and exotic dishes.
