Tasting Notes

Intense straw yellow. The nose begins with scents of lemon but with time in the glass the aromas of flowers, peach, apricot pits and grapefruit skin dominate. Medium-dry, this beautiful wine is young and juicy with a palate that’s fresh and well balanced. A lively, approachable Pinot Blanc that’s enjoyable from the first to the last sip.

Grape variety: Pinot Blanc.

Vinification: The juice is extracted with infinite care in air-bag press. The slow, gentle pressing avoids crushing the stalks and pips. The must starts fermenting of its own accord thanks to the natural yeast present in the juice, and the fermentation generally lasts from 4 to 10 weeks. It is carried out in stainless-steel vats equipped with temperature control, a medium which maximises the expression of this variety's aromas.

Ageing: Once the fermentation is finished, the wine has to be matured. This stage is essential, in order to fix its structure and aromas. As the wine matures, the tiny particles in suspension gradually sink to the bottom of the vat and form a deposit, which contributes richness.

Best served with: Excellent along with your favourite seafood, light-flavoured meats, light-medium sauces and mild-flavoured cheeses.
