La Porte du Caillou rose is a wonderful aperitif, like a ray of sunshine on your table! Whether to wet your appetite or to accompany dishes throughout the meal, this Sancerre rose is surely up to the task. Great with salads, springtime meals, or picnics – it's also a splendid wine to accompany Asian cuisine!
For ten generations now the Bourgeois family has devoted its passion and values to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, becoming Sancerre’s most well-known producer. The company is now led by the current generation of the family – Jean-Marie and Remi Bourgeois. The winery and family base is the village of Chavignol, and Domaine holdings can be found on a mosaic of plots throughout Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. Each plot is isolated and worked in respect of its origin to reveal, in the most precise and true way, the expression of its terroir, whether we are talking Kimmeridgian marls, flint, or limestone clay soils. We see this expressed in a dizzying array of bottlings, many of which are amongst the most sought after of their kind in the Loire each year.
This refreshing, very fruity rose will seduce you with its bouquet of ripe red fruits. It's easy to drink, fresh and particularly well-balanced in structure and aromas.
Juice is obtained by draining ("bleeding") vats of Pinot Noir juice after 48 hours of cold maceration. The alcoholic fermentation is conducted in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks followed by 3 to 4 months of maturation on its fine lees.
