The wine exhibits an intense yellow-gold color with shimmering silver highlights. Its nose is complex and refined, offering enticing aromas of ripe and fresh apricot, complemented by beautiful floral notes of white flowers and delicate hints of spicy-vanilla toast. On the palate, the wine impresses with finesse, elegance, and refinement. It showcases a subtle and crispy fruitiness, accompanied by notes of aniseed. The length seems endless, leading to a very warm finish. With its exceptional qualities, this wine demonstrates great potential for aging.Crafted solely from 100% Chardonnay grapes sourced from a 0.59-hectare plot, this vineyard benefits from ample sunshine and is ideally positioned halfway up the slope with an east-by-southeast sun exposure. The soil is thin, stony, and rich in sodium, with white marl outcrops. The grapes were carefully handpicked, selecting whole bunches and gently pressing them in a pneumatic winepress. After pressing, the juice underwent cold settling for 36 hours under temperature-controlled conditions. Alcoholic fermentation and aging occurred exclusively in oak barrels, contributing to the wine's depth and complexity. Complete malolactic fermentation was achieved during this process. The wine was aged in barrels for a duration of 22 months, allowing it to develop and mature, highlighting its remarkable characteristics. ABV 13.5%
