Description

Vineyards : The « terroir » is distinctive, 80% of the estate being on the plateau, characterised by a thin layer of the hardest type of limestone known locally as « calcaire à astéries ». The remaining 20% is situated on the slopes below the plateau. Altitude is between 75 and 100 meters with a remarkable orientation, very good ventilation and day long luminosity. The vineyard viticulture is both organic (AB Label) and biodynamic (Biodyvin and Demeter Labels).

Vinification : The transfer of intact fruit into the vats is achieved solely by gravity. Maceration and pre fermentation is achieved at low temperatures by introducing an inert gas into the vats (vats : 50% wood, 50 % cement). Fermentation is undertaken by the use of indigenous yeasts and temperature is controlled to less than 25°C. The wine is matured for approximately 7 months in barrels (25% new wood, 75% barrels of 1 and 2 years old) and then 12 months in cement vats.

Tasting

« There is a coiled energy here, as I often get with this estate, a real respect of the fruit. Touch hot, but a good mentol finish that brings it together.
