The grapes are harvested by hand and then directly pressed in a pneumatic press. Aged in the cellars of the Chapter of Notre-Dame for 11 months in previously-used oak barrels, then bottled after fining and filtration. 10% new oak. Lovely yellow hue with golden tints. Clean on the nose, which opens with yellow fruit as well as citrus. Straightforward on entry to the palate, with lovely lively acidity. Beautiful balance between acidity and fruit.
