A dry, white wine with notes of ripe pear and citrus, with a hint of barnyard funk. Slightly nutty, with a strong mineral quality. Unfined and unfiltered.
The white is made from the grapes of the second pass in the vineyard (the first being the grapes selected for the other cuvees) and from the less evocative vineyard sites. It is vinifed in stainless steel with no skin contact and bottled in May or June of the following year with a minimal amount of sulfites added before bottling to stabilize the wine for travel.
