Pleasant, floral, light but ripe, slightly vegetal but not that peppery, easy-going but with just a modicum of tannic grip, fresh but silky, red berries and peach, very good length. This cuvée is made with grapes from the vines of Beaumont-en-Véron, to which we add a combination of press and free-run juice from the alluvial soil of the left bank of the Vienne.

More

  • Comes from the vines of Beaumont-en-Véron, to which we add, according to the vintage, free-run and press wines from the alluvial soils of the left bank of the Vienne.
  • A de-stemming without bursting the grapes, a cold-skin maceration for 5 days, a rapid start to fermentation, a maximum fermentation temperature of 25 degrees Celcius for 10 days, which can be interrupted before the total transformation of sugars into alcohol, will give a very aromatic wine, greedy with tannic support of press wines.
  • After devatting, the malolactive fermentation continues in the vat and during the winter, this wine will pass to natural cold.
