    Velouté of chestnuts with foie gras

The Story

Hand harvested with successive sorting, in small crates with sorting in the vineyard. No destemming, no crushing. Gentle gradual pressing of whole grapes, without breaking up the press-cake. Run-off by gravity, racking of the must and vinification in new French-oak barrels. Aged for 10-12 months on the lees.

Vintage 2013

Fairly deep gold, with green-gold hints. Attractive intensity, depth and luster. Smell: Expressive and intense. There are notes of citrus fruits, apple, floral aromas, honeysuckle and acacia. The woody notes are perceptible but discrete: aromas of oak and pine, notes of vanilla, spices and toast. Taste: Forthright, round and full-bodied. The finish reveals the mineral qualities of the soil, well-rounded tannins and freshness.

45% Sauvignon blanc, 45% Sémillon, 5% Muscadelle et 5% Sauvignon gris.

Bright yellow with green hue. Restrained fruit and almost closed character. Hints fo grapefruit and citrus fruit in the background. On the palate good structure and length, a wine which is more convincint by ist structured than by its aromatic expression.
