    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

    Bottled unfined and unfiltered with very low sulphur

  • Tasting Notes

    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.
