Info about the wine
The 35 to 50 year old vines grow on two hectares at an altitude of 250 metres.
Info about the expansion
Hand harvest and whole bunch pressing, 70 percent aging in steel tanks and 30 percent in 228 liter wooden barrels for a total of eleven months.
Bright, muted golden yellow.
The 2017 Pouilly-Vinzelles smells intensely of citrus, apple, orange zest, bright red berries, wet stones and delicate vegetal notes that suggest lemongrass, dried ginger, tree bark and fennel. A hint of saffron subtly resonates.
Refreshing, discreetly provocative and extremely stimulating, it presents itself on the palate. Its accentuated acidity and the fine tannins are coated by a lot of fruit melting and a fine fruit sweetness. A Burgundy, equipped with fullness and precision, which appreciates citric and delicately tart influences in the wine food accompaniment. Burgundian drinking pleasure for little money!
Enjoy not too cold from a large glass.
