Producer Note
Run by Pascal and Marie-Laure together with their son Marius, Domaine Tabordet is
a 19 hectare estate, including five hectares in Sancerre and 14 in Pouilly-Fumé. The
domain is very much a family business, run in a traditional spirit, but using the latest
winemaking technology. The vineyards are managed with the utmost respect for the
sustainability and biodiversity. The resulting wines are a true reflection of the diverse
terroirs which make up their estate showing characteristic flinty flavours, with good
weight and a full body.
Vineyard
The vineyard is situated in the heart of the Sancerre appellation on the left bank of
the Loire River. The vines are trained according to the Guyot method. The vineyard is
carefully cultivated throughout the year with debudding of the vines, tilling of the soil
to reduce the need for weed killers and certain parcels are left with grass cover to
limit the vigour of the vines. Deleafing takes place at the end of June. The soil in the
vineyard is made up of Kimmeridgian marl, which is a chalky clay, flint and pebbly
limestone, known locally as "caillottes". The soil imparts the distinctive mineral and
flinty characteristics to the wine. The harvest takes place between mid-September
and mid-October when the grapes have reached optimal maturity and the vines are
machine harvested in order to retain the freshness and aromatics in the berries.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully sorted and gently pressed in a pneumatic press. The must
was lightly clarified, followed by a slow fermentation in thermostatically controlled
stainless steel vats. The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation and was
bottled young to retain freshness.
Tasting Note
With its attractive pale salmon colour, this cool climate rosé from this illustrious region
of France is elegantly styled. Lifted red fruit aromas of wild berries follow through to a
crisp, delicately fruity palate with a hint of minerality and an elegant long finish.
Serving Suggestion
Serve chilled as an elegant apéritif, also try with charcuterie, spicy Asian inspired
cuisine and summer salads
