100 % Roussanne
VINIFICATION AND AGING
This cuvée is inspired by the ancestral Georgian tradition of macerated white wines This wine comes from a selection of our best Roussannes. This plot, Les Escareilles is more than fifty years old and produces grapes with a rare balance The grapes are harvested manually and the wine is made using a particular vinification method for a white wine maceration.
This maceration contributes to the stability of the wine allowing limited use of sulphites After draining, the wine is placed in a sandstone amphora and aged in this container for a year A particular care and impeccable hygiene is taken at every moment of the production of this wine.
This wine is characterized by its golden color. The nose opens with notes of candied ginger and blood orange At the tasting, we find these citrus notes. Maceration brought tannins made enveloping by aging in amphorae.
