The grapes for this wine come from old vines on a hill with an east-south exposure called "Les Coudraies". The grapes are harvested when they reach full maturity and are on the verge of overripe. Then they are gently pressed for 3 hours. The must with an alcohol content of about 12.5 is then transferred to oak barrels for spontaneous fermentation at a temperature of about 14 ° C. The trick is to find the right balance between the alcohol content, the acidity and the residual sugars, but in our opinion it certainly worked!
Aging potential: 25 years or longer in the basement.
Now cultivated by Bernard Herivault and his son, this vineyard is committed to proudly preserving the traditions of cultivation and production of their vines, resulting in tight but creamy viscous wines that display an abundance of qualities of fresh lime andfennel seeds to dry savory "flinty" tones.
