The subsoil is principally composed of clay and limestone. This wine was made with grapes from vines located on the upper part of the slope with south-eastern exposure.
The grapes were hand-picked and sorted manually as soon as they arrived at the winery. They were then pressed in a pneumatic press which allows for perfect extraction of the juices without over pressing the grapes. Vinification and ageing took place in wooden barrels with a proportion of 20% new oak. The wine was aged on the lees for 13 months with occasional stirring.
COLOUR : Pale yellow.
NOSE : Aromas of white flowers.
PALATE : Lovely concentrated and vigourous attack. Mineral and oak on the finish.
This wine will be perfect paired with refined dishes such poultry in sauce, veal fried with mushrooms, foie gras, lobster, crawfish, and grilled or fried sea-fish. On the cheese-board, its natural allies are goat cheeses, Reblochon, or soft-centred cheeses like Brie de Meaux.
