Gravel, sand and south-facing clay and limestone land.

Vinification :

The juice is extracted with infinite care in our air-bag press. The slow, gentle pressing avoids crushing the stalks and pips.
The must starts fermenting of its own accord thanks to the natural yeast present in the juice, and the fermentation generally lasts from 4 to 10 weeks. It is carried out in stainless-steel vats equipped with temperature control, a medium which maximises the expression of this variety's aromas.

Scale  perception  of sweetness and acidity :

This scale is subjective, it depends on your perception of sugar and acidity. Each one sweetens its coffee differently, each one will have another perception  of sweetness  and  acidity .The sugar perception is very  personal.Our engagement by this scale is the result of the perception of  sugar by a tasting. These indications are given for one period  from three years. After this time, the perception of the sugar  can evolve/move.
Position 3/10: Riesling with a little fatness, pinot blanc and muscat.

Press:

- "Lemon -scented notes of ripe pear play on the nose. The palate is fresh, fruity, ligh and bright. This wine has an innate liveliness, freshness and a dry finish.
