The wines from Chateau Soucherie continue to gain precision and depth under the thoughtful guiding hand of their owner, Roger Beguinot. The 2017 Rosé de Loire pours a soft but glowing pink with a shimmery silver undertone. Comprising 85% Cabernet Franc, 10% Gamay, and 5% Grolleau (the only grape touched by frost this year), all pressed directly, it offers sprightly, attractive aromas of crunchy yellow plums and white pepper. The juicy palate pits round fruit against nervy acidity with a mouthwatering and salty note framing the finish. This is a slightly less lean, more dynamic iteration.
