K&L Notes

Made by the Millet family who have been running the estate for five generations, the Côtes Blanches refers to the stony white soils found on the slopes of Sancerre in the heart of France. This is the homeland of light, delicate Pinot Noir, made into fresh reds and elegant rosés. The Sancerre Rosé is aromatic and full of fresh berry fruit notes, with a rounded, cherry-fruited palate and a bright, minerally, yet silky finish.

    I have always loved Sancerre Rose, the high acid and minerality combined with the pretty fruit of Pinot Noir makes such an appealing Rose in my opinion. However, this year is probably the best of I had so far and the Cotes Blanches is my favorite of the bunch. This wine is definitely on the dry and light side with a lovely acid core and layers of light red fruit and citrus notes. Surprisingly this wine is also so well balanced that while ordinarily I prefer Sancerre Rose with food this one is totally capable of being sipped (or gulped) on its own.

    Made from Pinot Noir this dry rose is elegant and pretty with subtle layers of red fruit flavors. It is delicate and balanced and will be easy to drink alone or with light foods.
