Pale yellow wine with an iridescent colour that provides a fresh nose revealing the flint stone harmoniously mixed with lemon and grapefruit. On the palate, this ropy wine reveals the freshness and the mineral aspects with a slightly acid last note. This dry wine is delicate and well-balanced.
This Vouvray comes from clay-limestone plots with a high density of flint stones. This soil produces fast-maturing wines. The grapes are pressed for 2 to 3 hours. Then decanted, the unfermented wine is put in oak barrels for spontaneous fermentation with temperature control. The wine is bottled in the spring after being racked two or three times and finely filtered.
