Fermented in New Oak for 6 weeks and Aged in stainless steel. No malo.
21% Grenache Blanc, 21% Roussanne, 21% Bourbelenc, 21% Clairette,
16% Picpoul. Deep straw, high viscosity. Ripe to overripe stone and orchard fruits, Meyer lemon, prominent vegetal notes such as radish and watercress. On the palate the texture is round and smooth, with sweet baking spices indicating new oak. Lees characters like sour dough. Medium acidity, high alcohol, some phenolic bitterness.

В аромате персик, нектарин, манго, спелый лимон, груша, #минеральность , белые цветы. Во вкусе свежее, хорошая кислотность, особенно во вкусе заметен минеральный - меловой оттенок. В целом сбалансировано, элегантно, минерально, при этом имеет структуру и яркий #фруктовый характер. Чуть алкоголь заметнее, чем хотелось. Но в целом очень хорошо :)

A little too hot on the palate for me but otherwise a solid CdP blanc. Floral and tropical fruits with some phenolic bitterness and a light roundness in my mouth. Drink now with, and hear me out, sashimi... or chicken with a lemon caper buerre blanc.
