Elegant nose with pronounced iodine and mineral notes, as well as green apple, citrus, lime and zest. Seductive and powerful, supple on the mid-palate with flavours of orchard fruits and citrus zest. Decanting is recommended in its youth.
This Chardonnay comes from a plot of orthogneiss. Spontaneously fermented with indigenous yeasts and vinified without added SO2 which is off the beaten track for Chardonnay. Aged in concrete tanks for 9 months. The work in the vineyard and the cellars exercises a deep respect for nature and the environment: manual harvesting, indigenous yeasts, gravity fed (no pump). No filtration or fining. Demeter biodynamic certification since 1998.
