Sancerre, Domaine Andre Vatan, ‘Maulin Bele’ Rose 2014

Lovely zing off this rose, crisp, clean 100% Pinot Noir, lovely with the Cheese Platter in Whelehans.

Jancis Robinson wasn’t too keen on this – preferring their standard Sancerre – but I am. Not cheap but quality shines. John brought this to dinner.

A suggestion from Provence that Saignee produced Roses aren’t the real deal.

Saignée rosé “not true rosé”

Champagne Charles Leprince, Grand Reserve

This was the second bottle to follow the Laurent Perrier at Christmas Dinner where we were joined by Ross, Amy and Amber together with Ross’ parents, Lena and Paul, and his sister Vicki

I thought this to have more character, fruit and zest than the Laurent Perrier

Another pick from Lesley’s Birthday Crop.

A cursory Google suggests it came from O’Briens
