Light and fresh rosé wine, ideal to have at home for when the sun comes back. It will be the perfect partner for lunch and barbecues! Rosé wines account for less than 5% of the Sancerre production, so not necessarily the most common French rosé but definitely one to try. Don't miss this opportunity to add a couple of bottles to your order to discover it!

Typical well made Sancerre with citrus aromas and a light exotic touch. This crisp and fresh white wine presents a long and fruity finish, which is remarkable for a “simple” Sancerre. We would love to see this outstanding quality for all Sancerre bottles you can buy at this price, but we are not there yet. Highly recommended for Sancerre lovers.

The Chenin Blanc grape is harvested when affected by noble rot, just as in Sauternes. We love these wines, which present beautiful aromas but less sugar that some other sweet wine appellations. This 2011 shows complex and generous...
