You can feel the fruit reminiscent of green apples, pears, and white peaches. On the palate you will get the impression that it is pure and clear, with the acidity of biting a crisp fresh granny smith apple. The mouth feel is balanced but slighty stemy with a finishing profile reminiscent of sake koji. Its flavor gives not only fruitiness but also umami and intonation, and stirs the imagination that makes you want to taste it with dishes.

From the parcel named ‘Les Carteries’ the grapes are hand-harvested from 15 year old vines, planted to 45ha of fine flinty clay and sand. Whole-clusters are directly pressed, allowed to ferment at low temperatures and then remains on fine lees until bottling.
