Hubert Brochard Sancerre Rosé

Domaine Hubert Brochard produces classically styled Sancerre blanc, rosé, and rouge from their family-owned winery in Chavignol.

The domaine is now run by the fifth and sixth generation of Brochards with 152 acres under vine in Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, and Vin de Pays du Val de Loire. The domaine is spread across eight communes. These diverse holdings give the Brochards a range of soils. Terres blanches, or Kimmeridgian marl, gives powerful wines. Silex, or flint, yields wines with a strong mineral character, and chalky caillottes bring attractive aromatics to the wines.

Sancerre Rosé comes from seven different villages where deeper soils are better suited to Pinot Noir. The grapes are harvested by hand and then destemmed before being sent to pneumatic press where slow pressing extracts an attractive pink color over a few hours. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Sancerre Rosé shows the elegance and freshness of Pinot Noir thanks to the variety’s soft tannins and thirst-quenching acidity. The wine gains an attractive pale pink color while macerating briefly on the skins during the pressing. Aromas and flavors of red berries, wildflowers, herbs, and minerals are found on the nose and palate.

Food Pairing

Sancerre Rosé is a classic pairing with rillettes, the slow-cooked and spreadable meat made from rabbit or pork, and preserved in a confit of fat. Add a quality baguette, fresh fruit, and the famous goat’s milk cheese Crottin de Chavignol to recreate a perfect lunch in the French countryside
