Bright orange-pink. Vibrant, mineral-accented red berry and citrus fruit aromas show very good delineation and a hint of succulent herbs. Dry and penetrating in the mouth, offering gently sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that expand steadily on the back half. Shows very good depth of flavor and comes off lithe and precise, delivering firm closing thrust and an insistent floral note. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2017)

Hibiscus, rose petals, minerals, spritzy acid and great mouthfeel. Dialed in. Sit on your good pinks awhile and be rewarded.

Always a great rosé for any time of year - strawberries crushed with flint. Zing!

I was looking for something easy to drink tonight and I had seen that I had a few more Rose's. I remember buying this mid summer and it is a Pinot Noir Rose Sancerre and I thought what a great item. I lean towards Pinot's and I love the Loire so I has to buy it. I just wish I would have bought more. The nose is very clean with red fruit, red currant, strawberry, white flowers and a mineral note. I couldn't wait to get into this. At first sip on the palate the strawberries, red raspberry, sour cherry, some orange zest, minerality, and floral notes. This has excellent length, medium acidity, very refreshing with a very clean finish. I am just blown away by this wine and all for somewhere in the vacinity of $20.99. Buy it if you can find it!

The aroma is lively, mineral and clear but the structure is shallow. Overall good purity and harmony but no length.
