Story

The story
Pretty pale yellow colour with lime-green undertones. The nose is very aromatic and seductive with aromas of ripe fruit such as peaches, pears and citrus notes. The palate is ample, developing beautiful fruity notes with a nice balance. 
The vintage
2021 is a vintage marked by freshness, which is similar to the vintages we had in the eighties and nineties. It is also what we call a "winegrower vintage", human intervention and the care given to the vines were decisive for the quality of the vintage. Marked by climatic vagaries, with an episode of frost in April and interrupted harvest because of rain, this year has indeed required constant investment from our teams in the vineyard. Their attention and their commitment have borne their fruit: this vintage is very promising with lots of freshness and great balance.
Ageing
The white grapes are harvested at optimal maturity. The harvest date is defined through analysis and tasting of the berries. Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes are pressed using a pneumatic press. After settling, the must ferments in temperature controlled tanks. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is kept in stainless steel tanks until bottling.

Tasting notes
Beautiful limpid colour with yellow and green undertones. The nose reveals a seductive fruity bouquet with notes of lemon, citrus and white flowers. Fresh on the palate, with great tension, this is a fine, elegant and well-balanced wine, offering nice acidity and a touch of bitterness on gourmet aromas of peach syrup. It will be ideal as an aperitif or to accompany a starter.
