Hand harvested, chilled overnight and whole bunch pressed to avoid phenolics typical of this variety. Juice with a high solids content fermented in seasoned 300 liter Allier hogsheads with partial malolactic fermentation. Maturation and batonnage sur-lie for several months before bottling.


Distinctive and intense aromas of wild flowers, oatmeal and lemon-cream. The palate is lively and intense with quince and yellow apple flavours, hints of spice and linear acidity.
