We carry out a direct and gentle pressing of the grapes with fermentation of the must at low temperatures (16°C).
Selected yeasts are used for both tank and bottle fermentation.
As it is a classic method, we have a re-fermentation in the bottle at 15°C with a minimum of 36 months on the fermentation yeasts.
WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE
Colour: Clear, fairly intense straw yellow with golden reflections. The perlage is very fine,quite persistent with fairly numerous bubbles.
Bouquet: intense and broad, fine, herbaceous, fruity of apple and pineapple bordering onapricot, and floral of elderflower, delicate crust of bread intertwined with a slight hint ofbeeswax.
Taste: sweetish, not very warm on entry but very smooth. In the mouth the bread crustimmediately prevails, but then the fruitiness of apple and the warm sensation ofpineapple, the spiciness of resin and beeswax. The mineral is very present. The delicatealmond accompanies the sensation until the end of the persistence on the palate. Vibrantfreshness on entry that then blends with the warm sensations mentioned earlier until it islost, making this classic method soft and enveloping rather than straight and sharp, butnever flat.
Quite savoury, full-bodied, fairly balanced and intense. Rather fine, ready to drink andharmonious.
Can be served both as an aperitif and to accompany the toasts of great occasions. Serve at 8-10″ C.
