• Manual harvest, in small cases to avoid compressing the grapes and bursting the berries.
• Use of the principle of gravity so as to avoid all pumping, which could harm the quality of the wine. The must is run into French oak barrels (aged of 6 years in average) for 60 to 70% of the harvest. The remainder is vinified in small stainless steel vats.
• Maturing: 12 to 15 months, of which 4 to 6 months on fine lees in French oak barrels for 60 to 70% of the harvest. The end of maturation occurs in small stainless steel vats.

Food & Wine Pairing

Fish, shellfish and other seafood, grilled or in a cream sauce. Poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream sauce.

Pale, green-tinged color. Highly aromatic nose offers lime, menthol and powdered stone, plus a touch of gingery spice. Rich, fat and suave, with lovely ripe acidity framing the sweet peach flavor. Doesn't have the cut of a more classic year but this is nonetheless in a fairly delicate style. William Fevre owns half the surface of this grand cru (6 of 12 hectares), and winemaker Seguier notes that this wine has been stronger in recent years owing to earlier picking.
