2017 Thomas-Labaille Sancerre Rosé

Regular price $0.00 $23.99 Special Pricing

Pearly pink hue.  Subtle bouquet.  Fresh palate.  Vibrant and bursting finish.  Pinot Noir grown on the limestone hills of Chavignol. This is one of the raciest rosés you can find, very elegant, crisp and refreshing.  Sancerre, Loire Valley, France

100% Pinot Noir. Direct-press rosé made in miniscule quantities by this Sancerre star, one of the masters of Monts Damnés. The limestone-rich soils of Chavignol lend a spine of racy acidity to this zesty, strawberry-and-citrus-inflected wine.

"Light, bright pink. A complex, intensely perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red berries, succulent flowers and herbs and chalky minerals. Stains the palate with sappy raspberry, cherry and tangerine flavors that slowly on weight with aeration. Marries power to finesse smoothly and finishes extremely long and taut, with the mineral and flower notes repeating."
