“Our Favorite Rosé Of The Season!”

Our Favorite Rosé Of The Season!

By David Gettenberg

This season it was easy. The 2017 Francois Crochet Sancerre Rosé was on our short list favorites...that is, until we tasted it again mid-season. On that second tasting, it jumped to the top as the most complex of the vintage!

A short maceration on the skins allows for a beautiful pale pink color. With expressive fruit, there are white watermelon rind notes and a dry mineral-driven frame that lead to delicate notes of fresh red berries and green garden herbs. On the palate, the wine is mineral and fresh with a long-lasting finish.

On the outskirts of Sancerre lies the tiny commune of Bué, where you will find François Crochet and most of his vines.

A victim of his own success, François cannot keep up with demand, making only limited, hand-crafted quantities. His wines are some of the most precise and refined Sancerres around; they are intensely flavored with crisp, refreshing acidity and great length.

A perfect pairing for spicy cuisine, fresh cheeses and summer salads, we are confident you will add this Sancerre Rosé to your list of favorites too!
