The first sniff just after opening gave a beautiful yeasty smell underlayed with ripe peach, honeysuckle and lemon zest. It is tart with perfectly balanced acidity and a luscious creaminess that lingers on the palate. It also has a hint of licoricey sweetness in this dry wine.

Aromatics are elegant. Melon & light floral notes. The palate is a great mix of bright berry & more melon along with acidic tension and stark minerality. Sancerre Pinot in both Rouge and Rose is criminally overlooked. This didn't last long.

The palest Rose I have ever had, but it packs a punch.
