Description

Biodynamic Viognier harvested when the grapes are of a beautiful golden yellow color macerated in a 13 hl oak barrel.

Growing Conditions

19-year-old vines of the Viognier variety from a South French mass selection. 2018 has a small balance (15%) of Sauvignon Blanc, coming from our vineyard located around our Maso (farm). The vineyard extends on a terrace at 300 meters above sea level with south-east exposure and a lake view. The soil is composed of Dolomite limestone gravel and is marked by biodynamic compost and meticulously cultivated over many years.

Harvest

The harvest takes place in October when the grapes are of a beautiful golden yellow color. The harvest is done exclusively by hand.

Winemaking

After pressing the grapes a short fermentation takes place directly in 13 hl oak barrels. Fermentation occurs spontaneously thanks to indigenous yeasts without temperature control. The wine remains on the lees for nine months before being bottled. Like all our wines, it is bottled without filtration. In addition, the wine contains no sulphites with the exception of minimal quantities resulting from the bottling process.
