This wine comes from a harvest selected for its unique terroir and mature grapes. Fermented in oak casks, of which 30% are new. During the first three months, the cellar master stirs the wine to dislodge the dregs and restore their state of suspension for more volume and richness. Overall the aging process lasts 12 months.

Beer-marinated flank steak, blue cheese burger, rack of lamb
with mustard and fennel in port sauce, veal and lamb empanadas.

“A convincing and rich white wine (dregs were dislodged during the ageing process) with a complementary yet subdued woody flavour.  Complex and full of finesse.”

Marc Chapleau – Cellier
