The Vintage 2008 : After a very warm spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery with regular batonnage (stirring of the lees in the barrel) have produced very pure white wines, well-balanced with fantastic acidity. Aging in oak during 13 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Very pure floral fragrances mixed with aromas of citrus fruit enhanced by a mineral notes and a hint of vanilla. Well-structured and complex. Dense texture. Very pure fruit supported by a good acidity and a well-integrated minerality. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with "foie gras", seafood, fish and goat's cheese.
