VDF Sec 'Premier Rendez-vous' - Lise + Bertrand Jousset - 2019
Loire / France
Organic / Biodynamic
Hand harvested from 2 different plots in Montlouis Sur Loire with vines up to 70yrs old and planted in sand, flint, limestone and clay
Whole bunch direct pressed
Both plots fermented and aged seperately for 10 months in old barrels and blended 2 months before bottling
Light filtration at bottling
Rich yet precise with wonderful balance and layers. White flower, yellow fruit, and citrus aromas while further notes of honey and baked apple creep up alongside. Fun and thirst-quenching but with depth and body behind it.
