Winery Notes
Winery Notes:
The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted out when picking the grapes. They are lightly pressed then in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 228 liters (15% of new oak) for both of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts and wild anaerobic bacteria during 14 months. Ageing on fine lies. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and lightly filtered before bottling it according to the lunar calendar (fruit” day).
 
Winery Notes
Winery Notes:
Tasting Notes - Heady bouquet of dried almond, butter and mineral notes. Once the wine is opened, we have fine notes of white flower, butter and toasted bread. The sugar touch in mouth reveals the fruit was very mature. Its mineral structure brings purity and freshness.

Region :
France
Though French wines are the highest valued wines in the world, esteemed wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne were only enjoyed locally until 150 years ago when transportation improvements made them widely available. French wine production is governed by a strict quality-control system, which regulates the grapes used in each region and classifies wineries according to an elaborate cru hierarchy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc are just a few of the important grape varietals with roots in French soil. View all our items from France
