GRAPE VARIETY: Chardonnay
TASTING NOTE: Pronounced nose of fruit and flowers, with lovely freshness and a
few mineral touches. Generous palate, with lovely roundness.
FOOD/WINE PAIRING: Fish, shellfish and other seafood, grilled or in a cream
sauce. Poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream sauce.
PERFECT PAIRING: Sautéed langoustines with citrus fruits.
SERVING TEMPERATURE: Between 12°C to 14°C
VINIFICATION: Use of the principle of gravity so as to avoid all pumping, which could harm the
quality of the wine. Brief (1½ - 2 hours) pneumatic pressing to obtain a gentle separation of the
solid and liquid parts of the grape. Very light static settling of the juice to preserve enough fine
lees so that the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations can occur naturally. The must is run into
French oak barrels (aged of 6 years in average) for 40 to 50% of the harvest. The remainder is
vinified in small stainless steel vats.
MATURING: 13 to 14 months, of which 5 to 6 months on fine lees in French oak barrels, for 40 to
50% of the harvest. The end of maturation occurs in small stainless steel vats.
