Winemaking Notes: The fruit for this wine comes from three estate vineyards: Le Rocher, Le Jardin and La Plante. The average age of the vines are 34 years old. Skin contact process occurred at a low temperature, between 10 and 15 degrees. Grapes were gently pressed and fermented in oak barrels. The wine aged in French oak barrels for 6 months, with a steering of the lees each week.
Tasting Notes: This wine is clear and bright in the glass, with a deep and revealing nose of peach and mango. On the palate, this wine has nice flavors of deep white flowers and citrus fruits. It has fresh intensity and high complexity. This wine is velvety and elegantly barrel-aged. It will age beautifully, developing more character, over 3-8 years.
