About Domaine du Carrou
Domaine du Carrou dates to 1950, when the late Maurice Roger began on six acres of limestone-rich soil in Bué. Winemaking, though, was nothing new to him—his family had been making Sancerre in the Loire Valley since the 17th century. Today, Maurice’s son Dominique manages the family vineyard, which has quadrupled in size over the years.

This rose is exactly liked I hoped it would be - slightly tart, mineral notes, faintly fruity but what is there is spot on. Awesome with food, extremely refreshing, goes down fast on a hot summer day. Not sure if there is anything else I would want in a rose - ça marche!
Sancerre Rose Rocks!!
I really enjoyed this wine. It pairs nicely with beef, chicken AND fish. Trust me - I am a chef and I truly enjoy pairing food and wine. This wine is light, crisp and is great on its own. I enjoyed it without food as well. I am taking a bottle to Mom and Dad's tonight to go with our dinner - chicken pot pie - fabulous!!
Delicate and delicious
We purchased 1/2 a case of this after drinking the first bottle. I served it with stuffed center cut pork chops (stuffed with a date/orange peel stilton cheese, pecans and grated carrot mixture). It was a refreshing selection for a warm summer day in South Florida.

Lovely mineral taste with.soft finish. Is there more of it.
What this wine lacks in fruit forwardness it makes up in finess. It needs food, and it needs complicated foods. High in acidity and low in fruit, it can meld fatty foods with salads. Excellent use of Pino rose. A very sophisticated rose. Not for the timid.

Adored by critics, prized by collectors, Pinot Noir is one of most tantalizing yet temperamental varietals in the world. For many wine enthusiasts, this is part of the appeal of Pinot -- it doesn't reveal its charms easily. Pinot Noir's virtue also stems from the unique characteristics of the grape. The skins are especially delicate, which accounts for the lighter color and body of finished wine. But, despite the delicacy, the best wines have excellent backbone and...
