- 46% Sauvignon blanc, 24% Sauvignon gris, 24% Sémillon, 6% Muscadelle. Terroirs: Lumpy clay with little limestone Harvesting : Hand-picked when the grapes have reached the optimum balance between sugar and acidity. Vinification: Each grape variety is vinified and aged separately. For alcoholic fermentation, the musts are placed in one years-old oak barrels after a short period of skin contact Ageing : For 10 to 12 months on the lees with weekly stirring and top-up. Ageing finishes when regular tasting finds that the citrus notes have developed fully and there is a good balance between fruit and oak flavours. Cellaring potential : Between 5 and 7 years. Food pairings : Drinks well with Mediterranean style cuisine using garlic, with grilled or fried fish, with sauté of pork, and Comté cheese.
