Growing method

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

Only the first selections, less late than those of the Cuvée des Violettes, brought a real dynamic to this new cuvée. Partial fermentation allowed the natural residual sugars to be preserved, and the wine was aged for 12 months.

Analysis

Sulphur: total 95 mg/L (EU standards < 200 mg/L and organic wine < 150 mg/L)
Alcohol: 13,0% vol
Sugar: 63,6 g/L

Tasting notes

For this vintage, rather than working on concentration, we tried to let the liveliness express itself.
Objective achieved! This wine remains slightly sweet, but the grape variety and the terroir give it a lot of elegance and freshness.

Advice

Our favourite accord: with foie gras in a terrine or pan-fried, with exotic spicy cuisine but also with Epoisses.
Serve at 7-8°C to taste between 10-12°C.
Cellaring: 10 years and more.
