Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) clay and limestone. The subsoil is composed of different limestone layers (pebbles, marly soils). The slope is very low. 100% chardonnay - Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches). The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted out when picking the grapes. The grapes are wholly pressed in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a cold settling and a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks (15% of new oak). The primary and malolactic fermentations can then begin with wild yeasts.
