White grape varieties 20% (Vermentino, Roussanne, Grenache blanc)
The parcels selected for this cuvee are located on the rich clay section of the Estate, with the exception of a plot of Grenache, with a richer profile, coming from pebble-rich soils on hillsides.
Harvest started on August 31 and ended on September 11 with the Grenache plot.
Grapes were picked in the coolest hours of the night and early morning and directly pressed on arrival in the cellar (from 3am) to obtain a lovely pale pink juice. Racking off the clear musts after a static settling of 48 hours at 15°C. Fermentation took place in closed vats and was held for 25 days at 14°C. After racking at the end of the alcoholic fermentation, the wine was left to clarify naturally in the cold autumnal cellar.
Bottled on January 28, 2019.

Note de dégustation:
Behind the pale, rose-petal pink colour, it is a gastronomic wine with aromas of fresh red fruits and a remarkable liveliness. Full and round on the palate, the finish is long and voluptuous.
