The last few days have finally seen the sun reappear, and with a heatwave set to take hold well into the weekend, now is the time to get set for summer with the right wine. Winter's grip seemed to hold sway for a little too long for my liking, but it is time to return the heavy reds to the wine rack and reach for something a little more fitting.
Luckily enough we have the perfect bottle! The beautiful Sancerre Rosé from Domaine La Clef du Récit is a classic example from a region which is responsible for some of the lightest, driest and most refreshing rosés around. Offering incredible value, it is nearly impossible to find Sancerre Rosé at this quality and price.
Domaine La Clef du Récit is known for making top quality wines, with the 2015 Sancerre Blanc coming out top of a Decanter tasting with a score of 95 points, the reviewers waxing lyrical about its ‘depth and polish’. This gives you an idea of the calibre of wine produced on the estate, and backs up the work Anthony Girard has been putting in to his small plot of 8 hectares.
When the barbeque gets fired up this weekend, this Sancerre Rosé is the perfect match for grilled fish, chicken and light salads. Available for immediate delivery and can be with you before the week is out.

This is the perfect example of a Sancerre Rosé, offering freshness, elegance and lovely notes of wild strawberry. The limestone terroir of the area provides this wine with a lovely minerality. Bone dry and very refreshing. Definitely up there with our favourite rosés, and such a pretty colour too.
Offered subject to confirmation and usual terms.
We look forward to hearing from you.
