The Vintage 2017 : After a classic winter, spring settled down with warm températures but a cool weather in April slackened down the evolution of the vines. May was rainy and was followed by a warm summer with heat waves. However, a few thunderstorms épisodes brought enough rain to allow the maturation of the grapes to continue. The harvest started early september with an excellent sanitary level of the grapes. Vinification : after a mild pressing, this wine was vinified and aged for 10 to 14 months in oak casks in our cellars of the XVth century. Moderate proportion of new oak.
Tasting : Pale gold color. Floral fragrances (Lime blossom) mixed with pale fleshed fruit (pear) and a hint of vanilla. Well-crafted and deep. I Fine texture on a delicate oak note. Long and elegant finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with lobster, seafood, white meat and some cheeses (Reblochon, Cantal, Epoisse and Citeau).
