Sancerre Les Vignes du Rocher 2016

Sancerre
  • 75cl bottle

This expressive wine has a powerful nose of exotic passion fruit, with hints of gunflint. The palate is aromatic with a lovely refreshing length.

Vineyards

The vines are grown on flint based soils on slopes facing South/South East. The vines then enjoy optimal exposure to the sun. All vineyard processes are carried out in an environmental manner, adapted for each terroir.

Vintage

2016 was a difficult year with significant crop lost due to frost damage. Quality and concentration of the wines is however good.

Winemaking

The grapes are first sorted and de-stemmed, before the juice undergoes cold static settling. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at low temperatures.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted White Meats
  • Fish/Shellfish
  • Salads and Picnics
  • Mature Strong Cheeses
Perfect with seafood
