Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir
Jacques Dumont Sancerre Rosé is grown on the hills southeast of Sancerre and thrives on soils of clay-limestone and flint. It is made from the bleeding technique: de-stalked, the grapes are put into tanks. 24 to 48 hours later, some of the juice is collected and fermented in the same way as the white at temperatures of 59 to 68°F for two weeks. Then, it is raged on the lees until February and bottled. Rosé’s made in this way are robust wines.
It combines very nicely with grilled meat dishes and all summer dishes. It goes perfectly with a croque-madame made with Chavignol and a quail’s egg and all exotic and spicy dishes such as curries. A rare product to be experienced.

about the grape +
In France, makes a silky, deceptively powerful wine of elegant, complex aromas and subtle, red fruit flavors, with earthy, floral, mushroom and mineral notes. In California, shows ripe, sweet characters.
Produced in the Sancerre region of the Loire Valley by a fourth generation wine family, Jacques Dumont is a classic example of its appellation with a character that is all its own.
