Lucien Crochet Sancerre Pinot Rose
From the Importer:
"Made exclusively of Pinot Noir harvested from several parcels...a mix of Oxfordian 'caillottes' and Kimmeridgian 'marne'. This Rosé is made using the direct press method with the whole berries entering the pressoir. The musts ferment in temperature-controlled cuves (85%) as well as a small percentage in older barrels (15%). The fermentation occurs over three weeks. The wines is bottled in the spring of the following year."
