Great white from the Languedoc, made by legendary Rhone producer Michel Chapoutier. ‘The harvest is carried out at night to protect the grapes from oxidation and thereby obtain richer yet fresher wines. The pressing is direct, without maceration, and alcoholic fermentation is carried out at low temperature. As soon as the alcoholic fermentation has ended, the wines are cooled and left to mature on fine lees so as to reinforce their minerality.’ Technical stuff...but interesting.
Citrus aromas and notes of grapefruits and ripe fruits on the nose. Palate: broad and fruity on entry. Lovely ripe fruit, enhanced by a nice acidity, giving the wine good length on the palate.
