Winemaking notes

Pneumatic press. Natural yeast. Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation and maturing on the lees during 18 months, in foudre. Malolactic fermentation completed.

Tasting notes

The nose is refined, mineral and spicy notes. Elegant, salty and mineral. The palate is rich with good length. A serious wine with a lovely structure.

Impressive.
