A fairly pale, but beautifully glimmering yellow. The nose is expressive
and elegant, with citrus fruit, mango, and papaya that follow notes of
dill and boxwood, ending on touches of menthol, elderberry, and a
nice flinty minerality. A really clean, clear vivacity in the mouth that
opens on fresh orange, mango, lychee, and preserved lemon, with
white peach and a bit of apricot on the middle palate and vibrant notes
of lemongrass, coriander leading to a superbly mineral finish.
Complexity and vivacity sum up this 2022 vintage.
IGP Pays d’Oc
100% Sauvignon Blanc
12.5 % alc./vol
The vines grow in three different zones of the Languedoc…
Mediterranean, Oceanic and Pyrenean, in gravelly, limestone clay
terroirs. This enables us to produce a superbly balanced Sauvignon
Blanc of immense complexity.
The grapes are picked at night in two harvests. One that is early to
obtain natural freshness in the wine, and the second ten days later to
give us outstanding concentration and varietal aromas. Total
destemming is followed by maceration for two hours at 5°C and
fermentation in thermo-regulated vats at 14°C. There is no malolactic
– 90% aged on fine lees in stainless steel vats
– 10 % aged in barrels one wine old
– for 3 months
