Chardonnay - Sémillon

A modern marriage in an antique vineyard. Fruity and floral aromas get together harmoniously to create this generous and exuberant wine, typically Mediterranean-style!

SOIL

Chalky and limy clay at 160 meters altitude.

CLIMATE

The Chardonnay and Semillon ripen early in this region but thanks to a relatively cool summer end in 2010, the maturation was longer, thus helping to develop complex aromas and a balanced acidity.

VINES

Chardonnay 70%, Semillon 30% planted at 4000 vines per hectare.

FARMING METHODS

Vines are trelissed and grown according to the official sustainable farming charter.

HARVEST

Hand picked at 40 hl/hectare for the Chardonnay and 60 hl/hectare for the Semillon.

WINE MAKING

Each parcel is vinified separately; cold skin contact maceration; pressing with separation of free-run juice from pressed must, cold static must settling; temperature control of fermentation at 17-18°C, racking and blockage of malolactic fermentation.

MATURING AND BOTTLING

Fining and early clarification; filtration; blending after tasting; bottled in the spring after further filtration.

MATURING AND BOTTLING

Pale yellow color with green and luminous reflects. The nose expresses floral notes, with white fruits and fresh butter. The mouth offers a nice volume and shows notes of minerality and slightly honeyish notes. A wine of character.

MEAL SUGGESTION

Grilled fish, chicken wings.
