Domaine Michel Vattan, Sancerre Rose 2019Regular price $30.00 Save $-30.00
Variety: Pinot Noir
Michel Vattan is one of the best examples of how a winemaker can begin with next to nothing, grow slowly, and age well over time. He grows mostly Sauvignon Blanc for which Sancerre is famous, though Sancerre does produce a little Pinot Noir which is often made into a fresh dry rosé.
The Sancerre Rosé is made completely from Pinot Noir. It is made in the direct press method which allows the wine to have similar freshness to the classic Sancerre, but retain the aromatics of Pinot Noir. Even though Pinot Noir is typically a later ripening grape, Vattan actually harvests earlier to retain freshness in the wine.
