The harvest takes place in the first week of October. Simultaneous harvesting of all grape varieties, blending of the grapes at pressing.
60% of the blend is fermented in barrels, (30% new barrels) and aged for 6 months. 40% are fermented in tanks between 12° and 14°C.
Aged on the fine lees for 6 months, then blended.
The robe is pale yellow with silver reflections. The palette expresses floral and fruity nuances with white flowers (hawthorn, acacia) completed by notes of yellow peaches. The perception of wood is light and well integrated. On the palate a balanced texture with notes of melted wood and honey. Overall dashing on a good fatness relayed by an acidic support of beautiful brightness. The finish reveals toasted vanilla notes.
Serve at 12°C. Will accompany wonderfully an omelette with black truffles or lobsters with Armorican sauce. A wine to keep, to be drunk within 5 years.
