Climate conditions2017 was quite dry but contrasted. At the end of April the frost haven't wrought too much damage in the vineyard. June, July and August were dry but with some little rain which permeted a good vegetative growth of the vines. Noble rot developed since mid-September and vine harvest of beautiful and very concentrated grapes occured between September 21st and October 5th.
Type of winemakingThe must ferments in French oak barrels for one or two months. In order to avoid using too much sulphur, fermentation is interrupted by cold stabilisation and filtering. The wine obtained conserves about 190g/l of residual sugar, balanced by a refreshing note of acidity.
Type of ageingIn French oak and acacia barrels (10% new) for 10 months. Bottled on August 30th 2018.
Tasting notesOn the nose, this wine presents aromas of apricot, figs and quince. It is very concentrated, rich and opulent on the palate, always well balanced and never heavy.
Food recommandationServe at 10-12°C. It pairs perfectly with hot foie gras with figs, strong cheeses, tarts and any fruit desserts. It can also be carafed and enjoyed by itself. It has a cellaring potential of over 20 years.
