Grape 100% Chardonnay
Chardonnay 100% pressurage direct. 12,4% alc. 1,10 volatile. A long and slow press of 3 days in the old wooden pressoir of Gérald Oustric – The juice of the grapes was running all the time, so no maceration. Following fermentation in old barriques in our cellar for almost 4 years, no soutirage all fermentation has been on the yeast (sur lie). Bottled the 1st of July 2020, still a little bit of sugar left, therefore both cork and crown cap on the bottles. A white wine with a very solid and almost classic expression, the long fermentation in barriques has given the wine a nose similar to white burgundy wines. Even with the sugar that is left, the wine doesn’t ferment any more and this helps on the other hand to create a balance with the acidity.
