    Whenever Rosé is brought up in a topic, Provence is the word that follows by. Accounting for 40% of Rosé production in France, some said you must taste this heavy hitter before thinking you have truly tried a Rosé. However, in contrast, production here is often descripted as light, refreshing and elegant, the pinkish rosé color with mouthwatering fruitiness is such a darling by look, smell and taste that provides ultimate enjoyment to its drinkers.

    10-12 degrees

Just like the making of white wine, where grape juice and peel are not impregnated but directly crushed and pressed, to control coloring and avoid extracting too much tannin at the same time ferment at a low temperature, which can also avoid oxidation caused by contact with air, keeping the juice at its freshest and most fragrant state.

    Suggested food pairings:
    Tropical fruit salad, french toast, salmon poké bowl, goat cheese.


    Sancerre Rosé

    Sancerre Rose

    Rose Murray Brown MW once mentioned that her favorite Rosé comes from Sancerre. Where production in here requires 100% Pinot Noir, only meticulous approach from picking to fermenting can guarantee the best wine to be produced. Because of the cool climate, winemakers must be precise on the harvest time to ensure that grapes are ripe enough to provide sufficient sugar level and fruity aroma. Monitoring fermentation temperature at a certain degree also helps to increase the fruitiness within. Compared with Provence Rosé, Sancerre Rosés’ higher acidity level delivers drinker a much more refreshing palate.

    Best serving temperature:
    10-12 degrees

    Fermentation method:
    Short Maceration is a commonly practice in production. Grape juice and peel have undergone a short period of maceration to extract more flavors and colors. The length of macerating might varies based on the degree of color and tannin a winemaker wishes to extract from the peel.

    Suggest food pairings:
    Salad, smoked salmon, shrimp, light and plain Asian food.
