2020 Pineau d'Aunis Rose (Rochette, Domaine de la)

Domaine de la Rochette, Pineau d'Aunis Rose, Loire Valley, France 2020

{sustainable} 100% Pinot d'Aunis

STRAWBERRY & PLUM BLOSSOM, FLINT & FENNEL POLLEN

Pineau d’Aunis, a grape with a storied history in France’s Loire Valley - particularly the northernmost regions lying above Touraine, is a cool-climate specialist. While it is increasingly well-regarded for its very distinctive, earthy reds, its best known role is that of being vinified as pretty, subtle, yet characterful rosés. It’s perfectly cast in this offering from Domaine de la Rochette, acting as an ambassador for the variety’s strengths while also simply serving up a deliciously refreshing, crisp, clean sipper.

Serving Suggestion: Baked trout w/ dill, fennel pollen, & lemon crème fraiche. Mild green papaya salad w/ toasted peanuts, fish sauce, & scallions.

GRAPEFRUIT & LEMON PEEL, FRESH GREEN PEPPER, CLASSIC SAUVIGNON BLANC

François Leclair and his son Vincent are in charge of Domaine de la Rochette, where four generations of fathers and sons have carefully tended 46 hectares of vineyards along the banks of the River Cher. Their Sauvignon Blanc is grown on flinty, clay-rich soil, which encourages an abundance of minerality in each sip. Lovers of Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire will not be disappointed in the bright grapefruit and green pepper notes and fresh, lengthy finish.
