Details

Sancerre Rosé Les Baronnes Henri Bourgeois, Pinot Noir, refreshing, fruity, dry rosé. This delicious rosé from renowned Sancerre producer Henri Bourgeois is produced from 100% Pinot Noir grown on Sancerre's chalky soils, and made by bleeding the must after 48 hours of cold maceration to preserve the aromas. Like all his wines, it is delicate, yet refined, bursting with ripe fruit flavours and a lovely clean finish. Serve as an aperitif, with salads or even with Asian cuisine.



Domaine Henri Bourgeois is an acclaimed producer whose wines still exhibit the complexity of the terroir of Chavignol, being chalky with a touch of gunflint, initially steely, then ripening in the mouth with a broad array of flavours and wonderful length. The estate has been in the family for over 10 generations, and they still work with the same ethos and drive for quality and wines which speak of the inimitable terroir of Sancerre. They have several dozen small plots of land which amount to 72 hectares, including some of the very best soils for Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in the region. There is also a rather lovely story of a famous old oak tree in the village which was struck down by lightning, and then acquired by the Bourgeois family to become the vehicle for their finest grapes.
