  • Terroir
    Located on the top of the slope, facing due east with meagre, stony soil and white marl outcrops
  • Vinification and maturation
    Whole bunches of grapes were handpicked into small crates and pressed in a pneumatic winepress. The juice was cold settled after pressing for 12-14 hours under temperature-controlled conditions. Alcoholic fermentation and ageing took place entirely in oak barrels. 100% malolactic fermentation

    Duration of barrel ageing : 21 months
  • Features
    White gold with luminous silver reflections.

    Slightly toasted notes, flint, evolving with aeration into dried fruit (toasted almond) and white fruit (pear) notes.

    Engraved with fine and fresh anis flavour. Persistent and smooth on the finish.
