Aromas of crisp pears, lemon zest, wildflowers. Stone fruit and citrus, with a finish that echoes the terroir’s smoke and seasalt notes. Complex and very age-worthy. Pure flint (silex) soils, rich in fossilized material; such soils contribute a minerality and smokiness to the wine. A full south-facing vineyard. ‘Les Romains’ was one of the domaine’s first ‘single-vineyard’ bottlings (the first vintage was 1997). In the cellar, the grapes are hand-harvested and fermented on indigenous yeasts in large, upright wooden fermentation tanks. After fermentation, the wine is racked and then aged for one year in the same wooden tank. ABV 13%
