We decide on the pickup date based on the taste of the grapes. Our white grapes are picked late at night, then cooled to 5 88°C to preserve the
fruit flavors. We vinify 20 of our white and rosé in barrels of 3 to 5 years old in order to obtain complexity and richness Six different yeasts are used, depending on the individual characteristics of the juice from each plot of vines. We leave our wines on the lees (and without sulphide) for 4 months for the aromas to develop All of our white wine is bottled with little or sometimes no filtration. Bottled
at the castle.
Pale yellow color, flavor of exotic fruits, yellow fruits, pear. Very aromatic. To
consume at as an aperitif, with any Asian dish, fruit based desserts or on its own as an aperitif.
