Vin de pays
Luminous colour with hints of gold and green. Highly complex nose... A veritable symphony of aromas: white peaches, citrus, with a dominant exoticism revealing floral notes. A discrete and mellow woody flavour with well-integrated vanilla notes. The attack is lively. The wine is generous, rich and suave. Notes of toast in the finish.
A selection from the finest and oldest of the Chardonnay plats. Predominantly shaly-clayey soil. These plats, planted at the foot of the mountains, were specially selected for their freshness: Alternating between strong sea breezes during the day and winds off the mountains (Muntèse) at night.
Selection of particular plots. Optimal maturity. 'Maceration pelliculaire'. Standard racking of the must (cold). Temperature controlled fermentation ( between 16-18°). Maturing in oak for 1 year, including 4 months on fine lees.
