Gerard Boulay Sancerre Rose 2017

Gerard Boulay Sancerre Rose 2017

Let it first be said that Gérard Boulay makes a stunning Rosé. The 2017 is our first shipment of this wine, if only for the reason that we didn't believe any was available. We recently asked Gérard why we were never offered an allocation, and he replied in a typically laconic style, "Well, you never asked me." Lesson learnt! The wine is drawn from Boulay's mature Pinot Noir vines dotted around Chavignol. Each year, Boulay selects roughly 0.8 hectares of vines for the Rosé--sometimes a little more in vintages which are difficult for reds. This fruit is then hand-harvested and left to macerate for 24 hours, before pressing and wild fermentation in enamel-lined tank. The press wine and free-run juice are vinified separately before blending and there is no malo and no oak. Boulay's UK importer has asked, "Is there a better Rosé in France?" We work with many great producers but let's just say this--it's up there. An effortlessly refreshing, lacy and pretty Rosé imbued with the same kind of textural depth, finesse, interest and length of flavour that you find in this great grower's white wines. In other words, it's a knockout.
