Tasting notes

This biodynamic wine is a testament to the aromatic complexity gained when vineyard soils are revitalized, and nutrient uptake to the plant is increased. Golden in colour, with bright, fruity notes, and lingering minerality enhanced by wild yeast fermentation. Serve at 10 – 12°C.

Producer

M. CHAPOUTIER

Vinification and aging

Direct pressing of the whole bunches. Selection of the best juices from the pressing. Light settling. Fermentation followed by 8-9 months ageing in demi-muids, large 600L barrels previously used for one or several vintages. Undergoes malo-lactic fermentation. Very light stirring up of the lees (batonnage) during the first months of ageing.

Terroir
