Fine and subtle nose with fruity citrus touches, such as mandarin and blood orange. Hints of white flowers and menthol. Pure, fresh and perfectly balanced, it shows remarkable richness, fruitiness and finesse. The vineyards are made up of a single plot over 1,15 hectares (2,85 acres). The vines (of 32 years of average age) are located in the village of Davayé, in the ‘Les Cras’climat. Pebbly soil rich in hard limestone. 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, 10% in new oak), and then 6 months in vats. ABV13%
