A lovely yellow colour with bright reflections and notes of exotic fruits on the nose (fresh pineapple and mango, evolving towards citrus aromas like grapefruit, yellow peach and a hint of dried fruit). A perfect marriage of freshness on the nose and richness on the palate, while the ageing on fine lees accentuates its aromatic complexity.

Terroir and Vinification

Made from selected parcels on limestone clay, sedimentary chalk and flinty soils.  The grapes are harvested at night to keep them as cool as possible for the maximum preservation of aromas. The grapes are de-stemmed then gently, pneumatically pressed. The must is cooled for 48 hours to clarify the juice, then it is fermented for a minimum of two weeks at around 16°. The wine is matured on its lees and stirred regularly for greater complexity. Final blending takes place in mid-January.
