La Moussière rosé, a cuvee elaborated from Pinot Noir vines grown specifically for the purpose in the La Moussière vineyard in the heart of Sancerre. This press rosé is vinified in the same way as a white wine and has a nose that is a subtle mix of white pepper and red berries, a fine salmon-pink robe and a delicately spiced, mellow and full-bodied palate with a fresh, straight finish.

A wine for carefree sunny days, La Moussière rosé goes perfectly with tapas as an aperitif, grills and roast veal, and makes a very pleasant drink in its present state of maturity.



The Wine Advocate – 2014 vintage

“Mellot’s intensely luminous rose-colored 2014 Sancerre La Moussière offers an intense and aromatic Pinot Noir aroma, smooth and ripe and with floral flavors. Round and elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied and vinous Rosé with a well-integrated acidity. The finish is long and elegant and continues the red berry and cherry aromas. A characterful and perfectly balanced wine that is noble and solemn rather than racy or grippy. DRINK 2016-2018”

90+pts Wine Advocate– 2018 vintage

The intensely salmon colored 2018 Sancerre La Moussiere Rosé displays an intense and aromatic yet delicate, elegant and spicy-mineral bouquet of red fruits and flinty notes. Full-bodied and quiet creamy/caramelly on the palate, this is a rich and powerful, still elegant and Pinot-driven Sancerre with ripe, vinous acidity and the Berx fine tannins of Pinot Noir. The finish is long and powerful yet not broad or overly alcoholic. 13% alcohol. Tasted in November 2020.
