Domaine de la Villaudiere Sancerre Rose 2020

Winery Information:
Handed down through several generations, this 15 hectare family estate overlooks the pretty village of Verdigny. The unique location offers stunning views of the famous Sancerre hill and its vineyards. Patience, perseverance and precision are the bywords of all those involved in Domaine de la Villaudiere. From the management of the vineyards to the production of the wines, the family continues and builds on the work begun by the previous generations which gives their wines a captivating blend of authenticity and modernity.

Viticulture:
Sustainable growing (Lutte Raisonee). The vines selected for the wine are around twenty years old. Enjoying an easterly exposure, ripening is slow and gradual. The vines are partially thinned in July to maintain good health throughout the growing cycle and obtain good maturity.

Soil:
80% grown on limestone terroir locally referred to as 'Caillotes'.

Vinification:
The Pinot Noir grapes are usually harvested early to retain the freshness and acidity essential for a good rosé. It is is obtained 60% from direct pressing and 40% bled juice. The bled juice is drawn off after a light maceration to obtain the desired salmon colour. After settling for 12 to 24 hours, the must is placed in stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks where fermentation takes place at between 15 and 20 C. At the end of fermentation, the wine is racked to remove the first lees. To preserve freshness and good acidity, bottling is carried out in early in the year after clarification and stabilization operations.

Tasting Note:
Brilliant, bright pink hue with salmon highlights, the wine has a powerful bouquet that combines red berry fragrances (strawberry, cherry, red currant) with spicy nuances. On the palate, the balance of freshness and smoothness is immediately appreciated and the wine shows a lovely full character and long lasting aromas. The floral and fruity aromas nicely line the palate and the finish is light and long.

Every day serving suggestion:
Domaine de la Villaudiere Sancerre Rose is best served between 8 to 10C. This Sancerre rosé will be best appreciated with asian inspired pork dishes and summer-time meals.

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.
