La Poussie Sancerre Rosé 2016

Overview

Of all the centuries-old growths which dominate the majestic river Loire, La Poussie is the one whose reputation remains unblemished. Its origins can be traced back to the Capetians, as witnessed by a document dating from around 1040. The exceptional vineyard site, shaped in a semi-circle and reminiscent of a natural amphitheater, make it one of the most unique in the world.

Winemaking

The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted for color and perfection. A subtle blend of musts are drawn off after the red grapes have gone through direct pressing and several hours of maceration. The wine undergoes thermo-regulation at 154°F and is bottled after a short period in the vats.

Tasting Notes

Salmon-colored with brilliant tints. Nice intense aromas of raspberry, blackberries, black cherry, wood and strawberries. Lively attack with nice body, reinforcing freshness. The good maturity of the pinot noir gives a succulent and gorgeous fruity character. Juice extraction by direct pressing gives aromas of red berries. The "bleed" brings volume and density to the finish.
