Wine Importer Notes
VINEYARD Fruit comes from a vineyard that sits high above and slightly southwest of the village with southeastern exposures, warm days and cool nights, called ‘Le Ban’. Vines average 55-years-old from rocky limestone and gravel soil. Fruit is typically harvested a week later than La Combe due to its southern exposure.
VINIFICATION Fermentation in barrel, 12 months aging in barrel before bottling, on the fine lees but with no battonage. Bottled unfined/unfiltered.
