As soon as harvested, the white grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press and separated from the musts. The temperature during the fermentation is carefully controlled to give the wine bloom and elegance. The fermentation is made thanks to a fermenting starter of natural yeasts. Musts are regularly pumped over, then blended and after fined over bentonite. It is then cooled to avoid tartaric sediment and filtered through Kieselguhr. The first bottling is made in May following the harvest
A clear appearance with a pale yellow hue. First nose, intense aromas, fine, very mild of ripe fruits (peach) with hints of citrus and fresh herbs. The nose opens up with scents of anise and mint associated to sweet quince and pineapple. The attack is lively, fresh and floral (honeysuckle, acacia). Crisp mid-palate, ripe fruits (vine peach, pear). Gourmet end of palate with fresh feeling. Hints of fresh almond, rifle stone and citronella.
