Grapes from my best parcels of Kimmeridgian Marls in Menetou-Salon. Green harvesting is carried out after ripening so as to limit yields and increase the concentration of aromas in the fruit. The grapes are de-stemmed before being placed in vats to macerate for around 3 weeks in order to ensure a fruity profile and smooth structure. Frequent cap punching and pumping over ensure the gentle extraction of tannins and colour.
Translucent ruby red hue.
The nose is characterised by red fruits and wild berries.
The palate is fresh and direct with notes of blueberry, raspberry and strawberry accompanied by fresh fig and violet. The finish is delicate and remarkably fresh.
14 - 18 °C.
Japanese vegetable pancakes, roasted quail with grapes or cow’s milk cheeses such as a mature comté.

Wild berries, crushed blueberries and hints of baked plums and sweet spices on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with bright, vivid acidity. Not complex, but fresh and lively. Drink now.
