PÉPITE DORÉE

AOP Minervois White

 

Grape Varieties & Terroirs

This vintage is a blend of Grenache Blanc and Roussanne.  The plots are situated on the limestone Cazelles plateau. This superb quality terroir is characterized by a high content of organic matter and large lime stones. Our farming practices work in harmony with and respect the local flora and fauna.

 

Harvest & Vinification

We harvest 100% by hand, in order to respect the integrity of these fine grapes from the vineyard right into the cellar. The grapes are gently pressed whole, immediately after picking, with the stems being used as natural drains for the flowing juice. Fermentation takes place partially in oak barrels.

 

Aging

Aged on fine lees for 12 months in French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

The robe is pale yellow in colour with vivid reflections. The bouquet is wonderfully expressive and opens up to reveal notes of exotic fruits.  The rich palate is round with an excellent freshness and minerality, with subtle toasted notes on the finale.

Yield : 35 hl/ha.
