Domaine de la Rossignole Sancerre White Wine 2019

The Domaine de la Rossignole Sancerre is a delicate version of Sancerre showing bright lemon and smoky tones finishing on a refreshing, mineral note.

Producer Note - This Sancerre domain has been passed down through the generations of the Cherrier family since 1848 and the name Domaine de la Rossignole was given in honour of one of the ancestral parcels. Since 1994, the estate has been run by François and Jean-Marie Cherrier, who passionately believe in a philosophy of minimal intervention in the vineyard and winery, allowing the wines to fully express the terroir. The result is a stunning Sancerre, which showcases all the classic hallmarks of this elegant house style.

Vintage - 2017 was characterised by a chaotic start to the vintage with 10 days of very cold weather including two days of morning frost which destroyed part of the vineyard. Fortunately the remainder of the season was more serene with ideal weather conditions, which brought about optimal maturity and an early harvest. The harvest started on 18th September and delivered grapes with wonderful aromatic finesse.

Vineyard - The vineyard is located in the heart of the Sancerre appellation and the soil is a blend of the three main soils which are typical of the region: clayey-siliceous, silex and clayey-chalk. Biodynamic techniques are employed in the vineyard. The vines are cultivated as naturally as possible, with ploughing, hoeing and short pruning. The environment is respected when protecting the vineyard against disease. The vineyard is managed in order to consume the least amount of energy as possible.

Winemaking - The grapes were pressed within two hours of being picked, in order to retain freshness. The must was settled over 24 hours, separating the juice from the solids. After a racking, the juice was transferred to stainless steel tanks, where it underwent fermentation at controlled temperatures of between 19°C and 20°C. The wine was racked and matured on its fine lees to add texture and complexity, before being cold stabilised, filtered and bottled.

Tasting Note - An aromatic vintage delivering complex aromas of floral notes, juicy pineapple and wild strawberries. A beautifully structured Sancerre, with a full, fleshy palate and refreshing flavours of exotic fruits enveloped by distinctive mineral overtones. Long and aromatic on the finish.

Serving Suggestion - Delicious with seafood, grilled fish with delicate sauces, Japanese cuisine and goat's cheese.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
