Domaine Yves Martin 2020 Sancerre Chavignol Rosé, Loire Valley, France

Domaine Yves Martin is a small, family-run estate with nineteen hectares of vines in the famed town of Chavignol. The winemaker, Pierre Martin, took over from his father Yves in 2005. The winery is located in the center of Chavignol and is gravity fed. All fermentation happens spontaneously in thermo-regulated tanks. Most of the wines are aged in stainless steel (although a couple of the cuvées are aged partially in barrels) and all are aged on the fine lees, lending a nice richness to the wines. They grow vines in each of the two famous terroirs of Chavignol: “caillottés,” which is stony and chalky; and “terres blanches,” which is composed of clay and limestone. The result is mineral-laden, refreshing Sancerre with citrusy lime notes and a lingering finish.

  • Winemaker: Pierre Martin
