Characteristics of this wine :

  • Soils/exposure : Portlandian limestone (caillottes) – 1ha
  • Age of the vines : 30 to 50 years old
  • Yield : 55 hl/ha
  • Certification : In conversion to “Organic Farming”
  • Vinification/aging : Manual harvest in 25 kg crates. Vinification: long and gentle pressing (about 3h30) with separation of the juices and separate vinification. Settling after 48 hours of cold stabilization (8°C). Yeasting with a neutral yeast which does not provide any artificial aroma, just those present naturally in the grapes. Fermentation in barrels (Stockinger) of 20 Hl thermoregulated between 15 and 18°C for 3 weeks. Aging for 1 year on fine lees with stirring if necessary. Racking and blending the following spring. Fining with bentonite (natural clay). Filtration with cellulose plates and bottling after CO2 adjustment.
  • Taste and nose : Its sunny and limestone terroir gives it notes of very ripe fruit (white peaches, juicy pears) and minerality. The palate is rich and balanced with a nice fine attack and a very nice very saline length due to its mineral side.
  • Food pairing : Wine that goes well with seafood, shellfish and more elaborate seafood dishes.
