Terroir and breeding
Terroir located in the commune of Vergisson. Clayey limestone soil from the Jurassic period, stony. 8 plots of land spread over the commune. Facing south, west, east. Average age of the vines: 50 years. Small arch 6 to 8 eyes, organic contribution, soil work, controlled yield. All the estate's wines come from a respectful agriculture within the framework of a reasoned protection.
Manual harvest, light crushing, pneumatic press, static settling. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats thermoregulated around 18°.
Light pale yellow colour (white flowers, with an exotic note). Mineral finish, although well-structured, it leaves an impression of finesse and elegance. Complex, balanced and structured nose. Lively and frank attack, good length on the palate.
Perfect accompaniment to sea and river fish steamed with butter sauce, roast chicken with lemon. However, it can also be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif.
