Crystalline and bright with greenish highlights. Incredibly expressive nose offering citrus fruit, aniseed and mint followed by riper, lightly smoky aromas evolving to floral notes. The palate is clean, smooth and fruity with good tension, combining complexity and freshness in a most pleasing manner. An elegant, original wine of superb aromatic complexity. An original expression of Sauvignon Blanc.
IGP Pays d'Oc
100% Sauvignon Blanc
12.% alc. /vol
Vineyards growing in three parts of the Languedoc wine region: Mediterranean, Oceanic and Pyrenean terroirs. Clay-limestone and gravelly soils. This gives our Sauvignon Blanc a more complex balance.
The grapes are picked at night, in two passes. The first harvest is done at a relatively early stage in maturity, to keep freshness in the wine. Then 15 days later a second harvest is done, to get good concentration and varietal aromas. Grapes are destemmed and then macerated at 5°C for 2 hours. Fermentation is termpature-controlled 14°C (no malolactic fermentation).
15% matured in new oak barrels for 3 months.
85% matured for 3 months on fine lees in stainless steel vats.
