A delicate version of Sancerre showing refreshing lemon
and smoky tones finishing on a refreshing, mineral 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.
A fine end to the summer and ideal weather conditions at the close of the season
came as a relief to the winegrowers, who had to deal with a complex array of
weather patterns throughout the year. This vintage is flavoursome and fruit-driven,
with good balance.
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 taking care to consume the least amount of energy as
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 must 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.
Complex aromas of exotic fruits, mango and passion fruit combine with citrus zest
and a hint of smoke. A beautifully structured Sancerre, with a dense, fleshy palate
and refreshing flavours of exotic fruits and citrus zest echoing the nose, enveloped by
distinctive mineral overtones. Long and aromatic on the finish.
