Domaine Didier Raimbault Sancerre Rosé

Vine cultivation has been in the Raimbault family since the seventeenth century. The domain is a result of a merger between a father and son in 1996 bringing together a property that totals 17.5 ha with 80% of the vines on the sharp 10-35° slopes in the communes of Verdigny and Sur yen Vaux.

On hills that are 200 to 400 meters high, the vineyards receive prime exposure to the sun. Spanning two out of three of the region’s noted terroirs: terre blanche and les caillottes. Terre blanche is a calcareous clay with Kimmeridgian limestone laying mostly in the west of the appellation that yields powerful, full-bodied wines. Les caillottes is a calcareous mix with limestone and gravel yielding aromatic and youthful wines. A new winery was completed in 2005. Integrated into the hillside, it spans three levels to accommodate gravity flow throughout the winemaking process.
