Notre coup de coeur

IGP DE VAUCLUSE

Varietals:
100% Muscat à petits grains

Terroir:
Calcareous-clayey soil

Vinification:
Grapes are harvested by end of August really early morning so as to preserve all the freshness of the fruit. After a gentle pressing the juice settles  in  a  tank  for  about  5  days  at  cold  temperature  so  as  to enhance the varietal aromas. Fermentation is done at low temperature. A short maturation for about 4 months on fine lees preserves  the  aromas.  Working  on  lees  helps  to  bring  some  fat. Sterile filtration before bottling.

Tasting notes:
View: Nice pale, limpid and bright yellow color with light silvery glints.
Nose: Delicate and elegant flower nose.
Mouth:   The palate is perfectly balanced between roundness and freshness with persistent fruity flavor.

Very harmonious as aperitif wine you will naturally enjoy it with cheese. Thanks to it savory flavor you will also appreciate it for an evening drink.
