Bourgogne Rouge 'Vigne Blanche' - Domaine Tawse - 2018
Burgundy / France
Organic / Biodynamic Practices
Hand harvested from a single parcel of 30yr old vines on the south eastern edge of the "Combe de Lavaux" in clay-limestone soils
100% destemmed, short cold maceration, one "pigeage" a day at the start of the alcoholic fermentation, then pump-overs during maceration for a gentle extraction
Aged 12 months in French oak casks. 25% new, light and long soft toast, from Tronçais and Allier forests
Bottled unfined and unfiltered with very low sulphur
Ripe with notes of red cherry and raspberry. Hints of spice come through and an elegant texture. A 'baby Gevrey' with refined fruit, texture and structure.
