WINEMAKER NOTES

After a mild winter in the South of France, the first rays of sunshine bring with them birds twittering among the vines. In the old, traditional vineyards that have been spared from intensive farming methods, there are Ortolan Buntings, Common Linnets, and Red-Headed Shrikes, typical of the beautiful Languedoc. The stakes, which serve as supports for the vine stock, are a favorite lookout post for birds hunting for insects, and the grape seeds are a real treat for the hungriest ones.

TASTING NOTES

A nice yellow color with straw and golden glints. The nose reveals one thousand aromas and intense flavors. Notes of white flesh fruits and flowers abound in the mouth.

VINEYARD

Grown on the hottest and driest soils of the Languedoc, on dry and pebbly lands.

VINIFICATION

Protection of oxidations of the grapevine to bottling. Mechanical crop, skin maceration of 2 hours followed by a pneumatic pressing in inert atmosphere. Fermentation under controlled temperature (17 degrees). Racking at the end of alcoholic fermentation, clarification, and aging in stainless steel vats on fine lees for 2 months.
