IGP Pays d’Oc
The color of this wine is pale yellow with golden tint.
A first powerful and fine nose and due to a complex bouquet : vanilla note and white flowers. After we can smell more fruits like pear and white peach.
The entry is fresh, fine and elegant. Then the palate is round and rich. There is a good balance with the wood and fruit. Ends with lingering finish.
Grape varieties :
100 % Chardonnay.
Made by straight pressing. Then there is a sediment precipitation by cold temperature (10°C) during 24 h. Then only the clear juice is innoculated for the fermentation. This one lasts 18-21 days at low temperature, to protect the natural grapery aromas.

After the fermentation, the maturing in barrel will continue during several months with a weekly stirring.
