Sancerre Rosé - 2019 - Paul Fouassier
Beautiful nose carried by notes of red fruits first, then mineral notes, notes of citrus and smoke... Palate: frank and fruity, with beautiful acidity, and a finish marked by grapefruit aromas.

A 100% Pinot Noir cuvée, from 30-year-old vines grown organically and biodynamically, certified since 2012. This is a blend of vines planted on several parcels with calcareous soils. Manual harvest and yield around 35 hl/ha. Vinification: direct pressing, fermentation and short aging in stainless steel vats. A light dose of sulphites is added for a result of 35 mg/liter of total SO2.
Paul Fouassier, who earned his viticulture and oenology degree in 1998, worked in several leading Bordeaux châteaux (Pavie and Angelus among others) before returning to his large family estate in 2001. The estate holds 60 hectares, 50 ha of Sauvignon and 10 ha of Pinot, which he manages with his cousin Benoît. The duo represents the 10th generation, drawing the best from the rigour of Benoît...All wines
