Domaine Picard, Sancerre Rosé, Loire, France, 2020
The Domaine Jean-Paul Picard et Fils is a family run estate cultivating 14 hectares of vines, all of which are situated on the slopes of Bué and are amongst the best sites in the Sancerre region.
Picard practices ‘lutte raisonée’, where chemical treatments are used only when necessary and they plough to loosen the top soils and help develop micro-bacterial life. The wines are well balanced and very aromatic, full of fruit and subtle hints of minerality.
Salmon pink colour, with intense exotic fruit aromas. In the mouth this wine is dry, fruity and supple with hints of flora.
