A bit of History...

The Curot winery was established in the 80's by the sister of Éric Louis.

Composed of 12 hectares, 50% of the vines are located on the village of Vinon (south of Sancerre), which are famous for their grounds of limestone, clay and flint stone.

Nowadays, this is Éric Louis who takes care of the vines of Curot Winery and keep perpetuating the tradition and the unique taste of this wine.

 

Grape variety :
100 % Pinot noir

Terroir :
Clay-chalky and flinty soils

Vineyard Work :
The vineyard is the object of constant observations: we limit our yields, start the harvest according to the maturity of the grapes on each parcel, and then, we proceed to the sorting of the harvest.

Winemaking :
Our Sancerre Rosé is obtainedthrough the method og the so-called "saignée"
De-stalked, the grapes are put into tanks. 24 to 48 hours later, some of the juice is collected and fermented in the same way as we do for white between 15 and 20 degrees for two weeks. Then, it is aged on fine lees until february and then bottled.
This technique gives more lengh and structure in mouth to obtain intense flavoured Rosés.

Tasting :
Its colour is a clear and bright salmon. Its nose is clearly pinot.
It is powerful and structured in mouth.

Food and Wine pairing :
It combines very nicely with grilled meat dishes and all summer dishes. It goes perfectly with a croque-madame made with Chavignol and a quail’s egg and all exotic and spicy dishes such as curries.
A rare product to be experienced...
