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.
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.
