Joseph Mellot / 2015 Sancerre Le Rabault Rose

This Product is Temporarily Out of stock.

COUNTRY/REGION: France/Loire Valley.

GRAPES: 100% Pinot Noir.

ABV: 12.5%

UNIT: 1 x 75cl Bottle.

WINEMAKER NOTES: Bright salmon pink in colour, with a delicate floral nose and fresh raspberries on the palate.

VINEYARDS: The majority of the grapes are grown on flint rich soils. All vineyard processes are carried out in an environmental manner, adapted for each terroir.

VINTAGE: The unexpected warm weather in autumn produced exceptional wines with finesse and power. 2014 was characterised by a long growing season. The mild end to the winter and a dry March warmed the soils and accelerated growth. Bud break began in the first days of April. Except for the period from June 6th 13th, and the second half of July, the year was relatively cold until the end of August. Therefore, the vine was delayed throughout the whole season, despite bud break being 10 days early; there was a 3 day delay for flowering and a 4 day delay for veraison. For rainfall, 2014 was broken down into three phases: dry in March to mid-July, followed by heavy rain until 25th August when finally the return to dry weather permitted the moderation of water levels.

WINEMAKING: The grapes are first sorted and de-stemmed, before the grapes are pressed immediately on arrival into the winery.

TASTING NOTES: Popular Sancerre Rosé and no surprise why with its bright salmon pink colour, delicate floral nose and fresh raspberries characters.

DELIVERY: All our wines are stored in our importers bonded warehouse’s, which have the optimum environment for fine wine storage, by carefully regulating temperature, humidity and other microclimatic factors.
