VinificationStrictly controlled with a low yield (50-60 hl/ha). The grapes are harvested at optimal maturity and the bunches are immediately pressed, followed by a fermentation at a low temperature to conserve the aromas of tropical fruit. The juice is protected from oxygen, and does not undergo malo-lactic fermentation. Aged on fine lees to obtain a rounder texture and stocked in stainless steel vats until bottling to preserve the Chenin’s freshness, minerality and purity. The wine is matured for 10 months
ColorPale yellow color with green tints.
NoseFresh fruit, apples and peach.
PalateWell-structured wine. This balance is represented by good acidity, typical of Vouvray's limestone terroir, offset by residual sugars. Persistent white fleshed fruit notes reappear on the finish.
