2020 LUCIEN CROCHET Sancerre Rose 75cl (Loire Valley, France)
Style - Rose
Grapes - 100% Pinot Noir
Tasting - Foodie heaven this one. Akin to a seriously light red with a positive melon and strawberry fruit tang. Develops into tangerine and chalky dry mineral tones. A perfect riposte to the 'paler is better' fallacy.
FYI: Demand for white Sancerre is seemingly inexhaustible so you have to be some sort of dedicated hero to persevere with growing Pinot Noir for rosé in this part of the world.
