Domaine du Pre Semelé is located in Maimbray, a small hamlet between Sury and Verdigny to the north of the village of Sancerre in the beautiful Loire region of France. Brothers Julien & Clément now run the domaine they have inherited from their father, Rémy. Geographically and climatically, Sancerre has a distinctly continental climate with long, hot summers and severe winters, therefore hail and frost are common problems. The region is famous for making fine, dry wines. Julien and Clément identify in advance the plots of Pinot Noir that will be chosen to make their rosé. They then pick them at optimum ripeness by machine so they can load the grapes straight into the press. The result is a pale, delicate and fruity Sancerre Rosé. Very pale pink. Fresh floral perfume interlaced with strawberries. Very pretty and appealing. Palate is clean, fresh and zippy.
