Notes from the Winemaker: This refreshing, very fruity rose will seduce you with its bouquet of ripe red fruits. It's easy to drink, fresh and particularly well - balanced in structure and aromas. Enjoy “Les Jeunes Vignes” rose well - chilled but not too cold – about 10°C should be enough to conquer your guests!
Vinfication: "Les Jeunes Vignes" Sancerre rose is produced from the saignee method where juice comes from draining ("bleeding") vats of fruit after 48 hours of cold maceration. The fermentation occurs in thermo-regulated tanks followed by 3 to 4 months of maturation on lees to add complexity. 20% of the blend comes from the Mont Damnes.
Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir
About Famille Bourgeois: For 10 generations, our family has devoted its passion and values to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir to craft wines of unique expression. Each member of our family, Jean-Marie Bourgeois, Arnaud, Lionel & Jean-Christophe, brings its knowledge and expertise to our wine Estate. Rooted to our beloved village of Chavignol, on the greatest terroirs of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume, we work on a mosaic of many vine plots. Each plot is isolated and worked in respect of its origin to reveal, in the most precise and true way, the expression of its terroir - either Kimmerigdian marls, Flint or Limestone Clay soils. Curious and of a pioneering spirit, our family established in 2000, our organically farmed Clos Henri vineyard, in Marlborough, New Zealand. Here, too, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir blossom on the great terroirs of this region. Our Hotel Restaurant, La Côte des Monts Damnes (translated as "The Damned Hill"), managed by Jean-Marc Bourgeois the elder son of Jean-Marie, welcomes you in the heart of the Sancerre region, only two hours from Paris and invites you discover cooking that reinvents traditional local cuisine.
