Description

Viticulture

The plots are harvested in two stages. The upper part is picked last to obtain a good phenolic concentration of the grapes; the lower part is harvested first to keep the fruit fresh and maintain tension.

Vinification

Harvest stored in a cold room, then pressed with juice in a stainless steel tank at 7°c.

Wine aging

Temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and in 500L new oak barrels.

Vintage details

Pale gold in colour, but with a luminescent quality. Aromas are floral - acacia, lemongrass and orange blossom prevail. Fruity, round and buttery, with clear notes of peach, lemon zest, almond butter, spice. The finish has a lovely tension between a saline tang and minerality. For food matching, it perfectly complements grilled fish, white meat or a cheese platter.

Tasting notes

This wine is entirely barrel fermented and aged in 500-liter barrels. It hints at toast and lime juice on the nose, then adds peach and pineapple fruit on the medium-bodied palate. Bright, crunchy, linear and direct, I'm not sure how it will age, but it's delicious now and should hold up at least 3-4 more years. Joe Czerwinski /Robert Parker Wine Advocate
