Cave Saint-Verny Puy de Dôme, Pinot Noir Rosé 2018 Loire France

£8.96

Founded in 1950, this co-operative is in the Cotes d’Auvergne appellation in central France, to the north of Languedoc-Roussillon and west of the Rhône. It is named after Saint-Verny, a popular figure in Auvergne who was canonised in the 15th century, and is the patron saint of winemakers.

This is the sole co-op in the Puy-de-Dôme département and offers excellent value for money.

The vines are on the region’s sunny slopes of mineral-rich, volcanic, basalt soils. Hills protect the vines from the wind, as well as keeping rainfall to a minimum, and dry, sunny summers provide a long ripening season.

The aroma on the nose is very fresh and clean, summer fruits with a little spicy cranberry overtaken by an array of almost sweet white fruits and melon. A delicious combination. On the palate, the feeling of this wine is one of richness in the mouth. A blend of red and white fruits like a fruit salad, superb ripeness and long-lasting flavours in the mouth. A fresh, juicy, summery fruit salad, partnered harmoniously with the balanced acidity which brings out the best in each of the flavours and allows them to thrive.

A dry style of rosé, this wine is the perfect partner to salmon with new potatoes, soft cheese on salted crackers or tagine
