Domane Gerard Fiou Sancerre Rosé
WHY WE LOVE IT
- This Sancerre Rosé is a rosé de saignée. Juice is obtained by draining (“bleeding”) vats of Pinot Noir juice after 48 hours of cold maceration.
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Elaboration: Alcoholic fermentation is conducted in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks (59 – 64°F) followed by 3 to 4 months of maturation on its fine lees.
Tasting Notes: This refreshing, fruity rosé will seduce you with its bouquet of raspberries. It’s easy to drink, fresh and particularly well-balanced in structure and aromas.
Domaine Gerard Fiou is a nine hectare family estate which was created several generations ago by Gerard Fiou’s ancestors. Fiou serves as an important piece of our Loire portfolio, as the estate sits on the famous flinted hills of St-Satur in the eastern portion of the Sancerre appellation – Only a small percentage of terroir in Sancerre is made up of this soil type, which is much more common in neighboring Pouilly-Fume. This, combined with unusually old vines, means memorable Sancerre with deep minerality.
