Since 2005 the vineyard has been converted to organic agriculture. The vines are on the slopes with clay limestone soil and is the coolest part of the property. The density of plantation is 5000 vines per hectare which favours vigour canopy growth and shading, which gives the characters of this wine.
The grapes are mechanically harvested during the night to avoid oxidation, then chilled and macerated during 3 hours. Once pressed and filtered, the juice is long fermented then left on lees to increase flavour and palate richness. 10% is vinified in new French barrels, in order to obtain more complexity and better lees contact.
Pale yellow green, pungent herbaceous exotic fruit, yellow fruit, blackcurrant tip, well balanced steely, long flavour. Excellent in the aromatical style. As an aperitif, all raw fish and cooked dishes and hors d’oeuvres.Download the technical sheets
