Sylvain’s rosé is a pure 100% Gamay delight, an easily approachable wine for all. Aged 5 months on its lees in stainless steel tanks, it shows a light salmon-pink hue and reveals on the nose aromas of peach and apricot along with hints of raspberries and rose petals. The wine is full and inviting in the mouth, with a great refreshing crispness and a lively return of the aromas on the finish. Peach and apricot aromas on the nose complement fresh raspberry and floral hints for a lively presence in the wine, to be enjoyed on its own or with light foods.
Sylvain Miniot is an integral part of Saint-Pourçain’s current story. He joined the appellation’s co-operative back in 1990 and since then spearheaded a large investment in the cellar, serving today as chief oenologist. Rather than just wait at the cellar for the grapes, he is involved in the vineyards, with a fantastic drive to encourage the winegrowers to reach full grape ripeness with every harvest and an admirable dedication to wine quality. As Jancis Robinson puts it, he is “the one to watch”.
