Tasting Note

A typical colour of a Gris wine; very pale, a slightly salmon colour. A seductive bouquet with intense and delicate aromas of jasmine, juniper berries, lemon and peach. On the palate there is a good balance with a smooth attack and a refreshing and a long finish with beautiful minerality. This wine combines perfectly the softness of the peach and the vivacity of the citrus fruits.

Winemaker

The 2018 growing season was marked by a mild, dry winter conducive to early bud break. Incidents of frost on two occasions in late April caused a major loss of fruit, and the crop was reduced by 50%. Alternating fine weather and showers in spring and summer led to moderate water stress and quick, even ripening. This early harvest with low yields started earlier than any other previous vintage: on the 28th of August for Sauvignon Blanc, some 10 days earlier than usual. Conditions during the growing season accounted for beautifully fresh and aromatic grapes with good acidity, richness, and concentration.

Winemaking

Long maceration for 8 to 12 hours in order to extract the colour from the Sauvignon Gris skins. Pressing in pneumatic presses at low pressure, temperature controlled, vinification as for our white wines, so as to express the grapes’ natural flavours. Then aged on fine lees. Early bottling in order to preserve freshness.

Food Recommendation

Summer salads, charcuterie, red fruit desserts. The ideal accompaniment for lightly spiced dishes.
