Vinification / Aging

The grapes are pressed directly after harvest, then alcoholic and malolactic fermentations take place at 30% in stainless steel vats and 70% in oak barrels. Aging lasts around 12 months before preparation for bottling.


It is a racy and seductive wine, "dressed" in a beautiful golden color tinged with green. It offers a nuanced bouquet of hazelnuts and ferns, a very dry taste with mineral notes and a very good length. The terroir often gives it spicy flavors. Age makes it a bit more golden and spicier. On the palate, its aromas keep their freshness for a long time.

Food and wine pairing 

This wine goes perfectly with veal in sauce, scallops in butter and herbs, and most fish.Also to drink with hard mountain cheeses: Comté, Beaufort, etc ...
