Alongside all the great wines which François makes, it’s shamefully easy to miss his complete, harmonious rosé, which folds Cheverny chalk minerality into layer upon layer of Gamay fruit and Pinot Noir finesse. Chilled, the wine is linear and insistent, but give it time in the sun, and it unfurls just so: vibrant, full of the light and warmth of a late summer Loire du.
