Vinification

Gentle slow pressing of the grapes. Fermentation in regulated stainless steel tanks at low temperature. Aged on fine lees during three months.

A very fresh bouquet for this dry white wine which shows beautiful aromas of white fruits. In mouth, the Sauvignon brings power and character. The tasty final is due to the softness of the Sémillion and roundness to the third grape variety : the Muscadelle.
