Domaine Jean-Paul Balland Sancerre Rose 2016 (750ML)

The SANCERRE ROSE WINE comes exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape variety only cultivated on 1.40 hectares on calcareous-clay soils. Vinified « en gris » which means that the grapes are pressed as soon as harvested, it is pressed in a pneumatic press and separated from the musts. The temperature during the fermentation is carefully controlled then filtered through Kieselguhr as for the white wines.

Appearance: Clear to the eye with a tender rose coloured appearance and grey flecks.

Nose: The initial impression on the nose is delicate and intense, with primary aromas of flowers (orange blossom) and fruits (currant, citrus).

Second nose: Upon aeration, a discreet intensity with complex and gourmand aromas (white peach, fresh almond and litchi).

Palate: The precise and lively attack brings on the mid palate the crispness of ripe fruits (white peach, cherry) and flowers (iris, peonies) tinted of spices (pepper).

End of palate: Intensity, delicacy and precision

Balance and freshness: precision winemaking for a great rose wine.
