Alphonse Mellot La Moussiere Sancerre Rose, 2019

Availability: In stock (8)

The wines are produced from the upper Sancerre vineyard, the most famous of which is the Domaine La Mousierre. Its exceptional quality has led it to being officially classified as a unique category amongst the Sancerre wines.

The Domaine De La Moussiere comprises of one single vineyard of over 30 hectares.

Its ideally exposed location on the south-western tip of Sancerre, its chalk soil and its specific sub-soil are all perfect conditions for the cultivation of the vine.

Red and Rose Sancerre are produced from the Pinot Noir grape, particularly from the older vines of the ‘Vieux Clos Chambrastes’. Legend has it that this vineyard is located on the site of an ancient Roman encampment.

Made from 100% Pinot Noir

La Moussière rosé, a cuvee elaborated from Pinot Noir vines grown specifically for the purpose in the La Moussière vineyard in the heart of Sancerre. This press rosé is vinified in the same way as a white wine and has a nose that is a subtle mix of white pepper and red berries, a fine salmon-pink robe and a delicately spiced, mellow and full-bodied palate with a fresh, straight finish.

A wine for carefree sunny days, La Moussière rosé goes perfectly with tapas as an aperitif, grills and roast veal, and makes a very pleasant drink in its present state of maturity.
