Ode to the experimental and exploration of the wine of origins, the rosé. The first wines in history, made by the threading of grapes of different types and colours and varying macerations, were most likely rosé. Rosetta is a free reading of this story, transcribed with a contemporary eye. It is a dry rosé for which grapes from different varieties and different plots are married to reveal an expression and complexity beyond each of its components. Each year is different, guided by the availability of the grapes and the conditions of the vintage.

The name Rosetta comes from the eponymous space mission, which also left to explore the origins, but on a larger scale, the origins of life.

Domaine Pierre Menard by Pierre Menard in Loire Valley, France


Pierre Menard makes some of the most impressive Chenin Blanc wines in Faye d'Anjou in the Loire Valley of France. He grew up in a winemaking family and his parents own several hectares of land within the Côteaux du Layon, where they farm Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc grapes to sell to local cooperatives. Some of these vines are hundred-over years old. Within these plots of land, Pierre has isolated a few plots and started to create his own wines.

Pierre masterful creates several types of Chenin Blanc from each plot, in which he showcases the differences in the ages of the vines, soil types and location of the plots.
The grapes are harvested manually and the winemaking is low intervention, no new oak, barrels range from 1-3 years, and a slow cold fermentation that often lasts until the spring adds layers of complexity and depth.

Even though Pierre Menard has only been making wine for a few years, his wines are highly sought after and we are grateful to be working together!
