Sancerre is almost synonymous with sauvignon blanc these days, but this 100% pinot noir rosé makes a delicious case for the region's other noble varietal. What truly makes the wines from here so memorable is in fact the dirt these grapes grow on, known as Kimmeridgian or "Terres Blanches," a fossilized limestone that imparts distinct chalky minerality to both reds and whites.

The nose leads with stone fruits and delicate floral notes. Strawberries and sour cherries give it a crunchy palate, and that bone dry finish stamps its Sancerre-ian seal.

Food Ideas: crab cakes w/citrus-y creme fraiche, baked brie, seared scallops w/buttery fiddlehead ferns, shaved european ham croque monsieur
