Notes about product
The vines have a southeasterly exposure and are planted on slopes that get a great deal of sunshine. A diversity of soils, limestone types and a strict blending of wines from 30 plots showcases the finesse, aromatic complexity and minerality of this wine. This average age of vines is 35 years.
Grapes are hand picked. Fermentation in stainless-steel, then aged on lees for 6 months. Racking, fining and light filtering occurs before bottling.
Expressive, intense and complex nose with boxwood, rhubarb, blackcurrant, kiwi and a light vegetal touch. Bright freshness on the palate; delicate and lively. Well balanced and harmonious, it ends with a clean lingering finish. A marvelous companion for fish dishes, sushi, and shellfish. Also very good with roasted white meats and poultry.
