Terroir This vineyard has a rather unusual terroir as the subsoil is comprised of the volcanic rock gabbro, covered by a 40 cm-thick layer of clay. This unusual soil gives the wines distinctive minerality and lemony notes.
Winemaking methods Kept on lees for six months, in underground glass-tiled vats, which are traditional to the Nantais wine region. No stirring of lees.
Tasting The terroir brings finesse and elegance to this wine.
Fresh, lemony nose with notes of gunflint. Powerful, mineral-driven palate. Very long finish. Ripeness and roundness, with excellent balance.
Recommended with… Shellfish, noble sea or river fish, selected cheese, or hors d’oeuvres. Enjoy chilled at approximately 12°C.
