Tasting Notes The color is beautiful, limpid and brilliant. The wine has a beautiful nose of great complexity, refined, with a sligh reduction on the smoked bacon and floral (violet), which recalls its Santenay origins. The palate is silky, very fresh. It gives an impression of rhubarb and strawberries. The finish is very long and fruity.

Winemaking After sorting in the vineyard and in the winery, the grapes are de-stemmed and then directly put in tank. Cold pre-fermentation maceration is performed for 5 days. The spontaneous fermentation then starts. The grapes will stay in tank for roughly 3 weeks during alcoholic fermentation. The wine is then put in oak barrels by gravity (50% new oak) for 14 months. No filtration or fining is performed.
