Gerard Boulay Sancerre Rosé 2015


SKU nbfbl203


Unlike many Sancerre Roses, Gerard harvests his Pinot specifically to make rose by direct press, then into tank. It is not a selection of young vines as he has no young Pinot vines. What makes the rosé one year could make red another, and vice versa, depending on what the vintage gives.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Sancerre Rosé is a salmon-colored Pinot Noir with a pure, very well defined, intensely floral but also lemony and slightly caramelly bouquet of rose petals, rose hips, raspberries and just ripe black berries. Full-flavored, intense and elegant on the almost perfectly balanced, textured palate, this full-bodied,dry and lovely vinous Rosé is fresh and superbly structured by a fine acidity and grippy tannins. The finish is long and aromatic also thanks to the stimulating phenolics. A gorgeous Rosé with character and a perfect match with fish, seafood and fresh goat cheese.
