Overview

Just outside his home village of Verdigny, Stéphane Cherrier farms 3 hectares of Pinot Noir planted on a gentle slope of dark clay soils flecked with Kimmeridgian limestone gravel. A serious style of pink wine, this rosé is mineral, persistent and firm with delicate red fruit flavors and the capacity to age for a few years in bottle.
