89 Points Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast:

"This is a deliciously ripe, succulent rosé. With a rich feel, it is full-bodied while managing to keep a margin of freshness. A touch of minerality at the end adds a final bite. Drink now." 

Winemaker Notes

Domaine Hubert Brochard produces classically styled Sancerre blanc, rosé, and rouge from their family-owned winery in Chavignol.

Sancerre Rosé comes from seven different villages where deeper soils are better suited to Pinot Noir. The grapes are harvested by hand and then destemmed before being sent to pneumatic press where slow pressing extracts an attractive pink color over a few hours. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Sancerre Rosé shows the elegance and freshness of Pinot Noir thanks to the variety’s soft tannins and thirst-quenching acidity. The wine gains an attractive pale pink color while macerating briefly on the skins during the pressing. Aromas and flavors of red berries, wildflowers, herbs, and minerals are found on the nose and palate.
