Domaine du Carrou Sancerre Rosé 2020
The Roger family’s roots in the Sancerre can be measured in centuries, with records showing the family residing in the region since the early 18th century. It was in 1950 that Dominique’s father Maurice started Domaine du Carrou in one Sancerre’s finest villages, Bué. This high altitude bastion of Sauvignon Blanc boasts all three of the regions famed soil types: terres blanches, caillotes, and an enviable percentage of silex. In the vineyards, Dominique chooses to work the soils constantly, allowing the roots to extend into the limestone mother rock. Herbicides and pesticides are never used and the grapes are only hand harvested (a practice that is becoming rarer and rarer in Sancerre). The dedication put forth by the Roger family has vaulted to the upper echelons of the region.
We love this wine for it's finesse, smooth style bursting with berries.
This wine comes from the highest single vineyard in all of Bué, and this cold climate shows in the gorgeously pure and tense flavors of crushed red berries, pomelo zest, and cherries. The saline finish is pure, silky and endlessly refreshing. 100% Pinot Noir.
