J. De Villebois Pinot Noir Rose Loire 2021 750ml


Loire Pinot Noir Rosé is made from selected vineyards grown on ‘clay-sand’ and ‘flint-sand’ terroirs in the heart of the Loire Valley. The Pinot Noir grapes are harvested at night to benefit from the cold Loire temperature. The grapes are gently pressed at a low pressure in a pneumatic press to get beautiful Rose color. The juices are fermented in stainless steel tanks during 15 to 20 days at low temperature (14 to 18°C). The Pinot Noir Rose is bottled in the winter after a few months of aging on fine lees to preserve the aromatics.

Tasting Notes: Blessed with a bright light rose-peach color. The nose reveals some fresh raspberry flavors followed by a red fruit bouquet (grenadine, blueberry, sour cherries). The palate is silky, juicy with an airy freshness. The intense black-currant and red cherry aromas dominate the mid-palate while the long-lasting grapefruit flavors nicely compliment the zesty finale.

Food Pairing: A real Rose treat! Enjoy it during the aperitif, with a BBQ or some Mediterranean salads. 

ABV: 11-14% / Variety: Pinot Noir / Origin: Loire Valley, France
