Tasting Notes

Made by the Millet family who have been running the estate for five generations. Vigneron Nicolas Millet has taken the helm of this family operation, originally established in the 1930s, and began moving the winemaking toward organics in 2008. Nicolas makes wonderful blancs and rouges but the rosé is always a standout in the category. 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've always loved Rose of Pinot Noir and this is exactly why! Crisp, refreshing and delicate, this is the perfect bottle for all of your Summer festivities. This Rose is bursting with pretty red fruits, subtle floral aromas and fresh mineral notes. Pick this up for your next picnic, beach day or cook out!

    Bright mineral driven rose from Sancerre, what is there not to love? This is a beautiful wine for Rose season because it has the clean tart fruit and dry crisp finish that everyone wants these days but with that limestone minerality, this region is known for. This is always one of our most popular Sancerre's and the rose has become equally as popular because it is just about one of the best picnic, pizza, salad and summer wines we carry.

    The Sancerre rosé from Domaine des Côtes Blanches is always a treat and always one of my favorite Pinot Noir rosés of the season. This shows a lighter color with an elegant nose of white flowers, fresh picked strawberries and a crisp cherry finish. Even more fun, we have a limited number of half bottles and magnums suitable for all your summertime drinking needs. The Côtes Blanches is the perfect accompaniment to salmon glazed with a mustard tarragon sauce or mussels steamed with garlic, sausage, and of course, a little rosé wine!
