About

91

"Brilliant orange. Ripe red berries, orange pith and a strong floral note on the deeply perfumed nose. Supple and open-knit, offering sappy raspberry and tangerine flavors that are supported and sharpened by a spine of juicy acidity. Densely packed yet lively as well, showing excellent clarity and mineral cut on a long, red fruit-dominated finish. This ample pink wine would make a great stand-in for a light red alongside full-flavored food."

Product Description:

Those of you who are drinking wines like Whispering Angel and Miraval in particular will want to take a long look at this fruity, yet subtle and complex Rose made up from Pinot Noir!

This Sancerre Rose evokes autumnal fruit and reveals juicy aromas of strawberry and raspberry.

Located in the heart of the village of Sury-en-Vaux (5 km from Sancerre), Domaine Raimbault-Pineau was formed by a family of Sancerre winemakers that have been producing wine for over 3 centuries.

In 1946, Lucien Raimbault acquired a well-known vineyard; its terroir was composed of chalky-clay and enjoyed extraordinary sun exposure. The Raimbault family has continuously worked this land, and today the domaine has 40 separate plots of AOC Sancerre vines, all located around the village of Sury-en-Vaux (La Montee de St. Romble, La Cote de la Pointe, La Cote de Sury).

The domaine also makes Pouilly-Fume, "La Montée des Lumeaux" (acquired 10 years ago), situated in the village of St. Martin-sur-Nohain, as well as Coteaux du Giennois, "Les Vignes du Dimanche," in the village of St. Pere. All of the vineyards are worked in the traditional manner, with great care and attention paid to the vines.
