HARVEST : 100% manual

VINIFICATION : The grapes are put in the pneumatic press without crushing, and the pressing is long and smooth in order to preserve the purity of the aromas. Wild-yeast fermentation during 1 to 3 months in our old oak casks, then aged 4 to 6 more months on the fine lees. Estate bottled.

WHEN TO DRINK IT? Can be enjoyed on the nice floral notes during 3 years following the bottling. Then it can be enjoyed more complex and elegant from 4 to 10 years.

TASTING NOTES : Delicate rose notes on the nose, with notes of dried herbs. Beautiful fruit in mouth underlined by a nice freshness. Crystalline, long, drinkable.

PAIRING : Ideal as an aperitif. Its flavors are delightful, and its freshness will leave your palate ready for the next part of the meal.

HOW TO SERVE IT : At 10°C. Better when opened an hour before pouring. There can be some natural CO2, please decant if too much. Some lees in the bottles do not affect the quality of the wine.
