A powerful wine with great opulence and unusually high levels of ripe fruit. A white for many occasions.

This Pinot Gris has wonderful mineral notes which are paired with the creamy, delicate fruitiness of a Burgundy type wine: overripe apricots, walnuts, dried apples, sweet lychees and a finish of intense yellow fruits. All in a perfect harmony with a mild, flattering acidity. Vigour combined with a soft character and the greatest of elegance. Loess soils produce enormously juicy and powerful wines with a mineral finish. Loess is primeval sediment composed of quartz and lime, which, following the Ice Age, was wind-deposited to the tributary valleys from glacial abrasions.

Wine making:

After a short maceration period, these Pinot Gris grapes are were pressed as fully ripe grapes. After a spontaneous fermentation with the natural yeasts, the wine is stored on the yeast until shortly before bottling. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks and in 228 litres French oak.
