2014 Pascal Jolivet Sancerre Rosé, $18.99

Even before opening the bottle, I already had high hopes for this rosé, based on a few factors. First, it’s 100 percent Pinot Noir from the Sancerre Appellation in France’s wonderful Loire Valley. Second, the producer makes lovely wines using natural processes. And third, the very light peach color is very enticing. There is a fair amount of structure here, yet the wine displays ample elegance. The red, tangy fruits intermingle well with the subtle, refreshing acidity. This wine is made using the Saignee method, neither hand-sorted nor de-stemmed, and fermented naturally without the addition of cultivated yeasts. Also available in magnums. Get some!
