Terroir
terroir
Age of the vines: 60+ years The white vines are mostly on Urgonian limestones located on the Western side of the estate. This provides wines with excellent minerality. Exposure: Mostly South-West Altitude: 40-100 meters
Vinification
vinification
Early harvest (usually before September 15th) to preserve maximum freshness. 100% hand harvest into small baskets. The grapes are gently pressed in a pneumatic press right after the harvest. After cold settling, the Roussanne ferment in 225 liters oak barrels. The wine then ages in new oak barrels with regular stirring and racking. There is no malolactic fermentation and the wine is slightly filtered before bottling.
Tasting
degustation
The color is very dense, almost gold. On the nose, notes of mango and poached pear. On the palate, vanilla custard, brioche and salty minerality as well as a beautifully rich texture.
To serve
Best served at 14-16°C to get the full expression of the complex aromas.
Aging potential
vieillissement
Perfect to drink now, but can be kept 5 to 10 years for an evolution towards some even more roundness and fattiness and some gingerbread and mushroom aromas.
