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.

Pale orange-pink. Lovely floral lift to the fruity aromas and flavors of strawberry, raspberry and orange zest. Densely packed and dry, with terrific inner-mouth verve and minerality. I could gulp down this subtle, round, long, uncompromisingly dry rose on its own. Classic pink wine from a northerly climate.
very nice rose
interestign wine; dry, mineral, complex fruit but light - would like more
Another rose offering that hits the spot
A perfect complement to their sauvignon blanc, which I also enjoy. Just enough fruit and minerality to make it fascinating as a sipping wine, but also holds up well to a variety of food. Glad I purchased this one.
Exactly what you would expect. Crisp; almost flinty. Flavorful but light. Stands out. Perfect summer wine. Unfortunately, it is all gone.

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...
