Gilles Crochet’s complex and age-worthy Sancerre Rosé is pure Pinot Noir, from vines planted in Oxfordian and Kimmeridgian limestone. It is harvested by hand (a rare practice in Sancerre), pressed directly, and aged on its fine lees in stainless steel for six months. Vinous without being at all overbearing, it offers the visceral salinity of the domaine’s white wines alongside the red-fruited elegance of Pinot Noir from these distinctive soils.
