Our vines are cultivated in a traditional and selective manner. Soil maintenance is done mechanically without chemical weeding and our vines are protected using preparations made from natural products.

Winemaking

Short maceration. Aged in Burgundy barrels and in Italian amphoras. Unfiltered, this wine may present a slight deposit which does not affect the quality.

Analysis

Sulphites: total = 32 mg/L (standards: EU < 200 mg/L and organic wine < 150 mg/L)
Alcohol: 13,03% vol
Residual sugars: < 0,50 g/L

Tasting notes

Here is a white wine of maceration which awakens the chardonnay. The colour is golden without being amber or orange. One is first of all seized by the depth of the aromatic expression. The palate provides a comparable emotion, refined and sharp. The finish underlines the fruits and spices that let us imagine new agreements. The tannic texture extracted from the skins and seeds reinforces the expression of the terroir and brings a new dimension to the mouth!
Our (white) craze of the year!
