VINIFICATION & AGING:
Hand picked at perfect maturity, grapes are sorted when arriving in the cellar and directly pressed in a pneumatic press for 3 hours. The juice flows slowly into the vat. After 24 hours, the juice is racked and the fermentation at low temperature begins to protect all flavors. The ageing of the wines lasts almost 6 months on fine lees with regular stirring.
This green-tinged yellow Côtes du Rhône Villages is a vibrant, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit aromas. It is focused and pure, offering peach and pear flavors. It becomes fleshier and deeper with some aeration without losing its freshness and elegance.
