This cuvée is elaborated from grapes coming from old vines of about sixty years, planted in Pinot noir. It benefits from a very good south-south-east exposure and a particularly rich clay-silica soil.
Part of the wine is vinified in stainless steel tanks (40%) and another part in new French oak barrels with light toasting (60%). The wine is then aged for 12 months in vats and barrels. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation before being racked and blended. No filtration.
Our red Sancerre "Le Grand Roc" develops aromas of cherry and prune, slightly jammy, on a light structure and a melted woody taste. A mineral length gives it finesse and an ageing potential of 6 to 8 years.
This red Sancerre marries perfectly with grilled meats, dishes in sauce or fresh fruit desserts.
A piece of meat on the barbecue or a strawberry pie will awaken its fruit and freshness with delight.
