Forgotten grape varieties

Auxerrois Vieilles Vignes

1 bottle of 0.75 L

An easy match for white meats and poultry.


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


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 large oak barrels equipped with temperature control, a medium which maximises the expression of the minerals of the juice.


The wine is matured on its lees in large oak barrels for 12 months. This lees-contact contributes richness to the wine. What is more, the oxygen which passes through the pores of the wood brings about a gentle oxidization of the wine, and the subsequent opening up of its aromas.The wine is then bottled and aged for 2 to 3 further years before being offered for sale.This bottle-ageing also plays a role in the wine's development. Here, the opposite of oxidization happens: thanks to certain reactions in the oxygen-free environment, the bouquet develops and takes on subtler nuances.

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  personnal. Our engagement by this scale is the result of the perception of sucrosity by a tasting. These indications are given for one period from three years. After this time, the perception of the sucrosity can evolve/move. 
Position 4/10: Riesling   with a little fatness,  Auxerrois and dry Gewurztraminer from cold vintages.


- "A fresh nose suggests lemon purity. The palate also majors on aromatic, lemon-scented, light-footed freshness. This wine is slender, dry and seductive in a summery, gentle way." - 90 Points
