Tasting Notes

An expressive wine with aromas of apricot, fennel and floral scents. The wines roundness is a perfect match for its freshness, with a finish reveals subtle notes of aniseed.

Grilled and roasted white meats. Enjoy with fish, shellfish, and salads. Perfect for picnics with mild creamy cheese and grilled sardines or sea bream “a la plancha” - roasted on an iron skillet.

Harvest is carried out at night by machine to prevent and limit oxidation of the juices and preserve the aromatic components. Total destemming followed by a light skin maceration particularly for the Viognier, gentle pressing. Cold static settling. Alcoholic fermentation at low temperature in stainless steel vats. The wine is protected from oxygen to preserve its aromatic potential and undergoes 5 months ageing on the fine lees.

Alcohol by Volume: 14.0%
Residual Sugar: <0.8 g/L
pH:3.34

Planted mainly in stony-marl soils and on clay-limestone slopes, these soils are porous with a steady and regular water supply. They warm up quickly in the spring and help the grapes to reach perfect maturity.
