Subtle and delicate nose offering aromas of flowers and citrus fruits. Dominated by a chiseled minerality, the mouth is ample, rich and refined, combining white fruits and fine buttery notes. A saline finish. 3 plots on 0.40 hectares. The vines are located on the southern flank of the Roche de solutré at 300 meters altitude, on the climate "Au Vignerais", on clay-limestone soils, predominantly stony and shallow. Immediately upon arrival (20 mins maximum from pick up), the grapes are pressed (pneumatic). Fermentation in temperature-controlled vats for 4 to 6 weeks using only indigenous yeasts. A complete malolactic fermentation is carried out in order to preserve the wine’s complexity. Aging for 12 months on its fine lees in oak barrels (French oak from Jupille forest, CAVIN cooperage, 20% in new oak), and then 6 months in vats. ABV 13%
