Location :

Planted on silty, clayey and shallow soil(less than 30cms). The sub-soil is made of schist and Gneiss. The wine comes from parcels located on a hillside reputed for producing wines with good aging ability. The age of the vine is over 40 years old.

 

Wine making – Maturing :

Direct pressing, wine making in underground thermo-regulated vats, the wine is left on the lees with one or two Bâtonnages (stirring the settled lees back into the wine) to noticeably give the wine a “fatter” texture and more richness and increase its aging potential.

Characteristics :

_ Sight: pale yellow with citrine hints.

_ Nose: complex, spicy and fruity with notes of stewed apricot, honey and candied lemon with a hint of caramel.

_ Palate: supple attack in the mouth which develops a beautiful and mineral power with hazelnut notes refreshed by a hint of anise. Supple and generous on the whole.

Aging – Food Paring :

Ideal with white meat or fish cooked in a sauce.

This wine can be drunk now or kept up to 5 years.
