Description

This wine comes from 20 different parcels of Jacquère on steep slopes with limestone scree. Aged in 50% in foudres as well as sandstone amphoras and old barrels, the wine has a very pale colour and a dynamic mouthfeel. A fantastic saline and lemon balance in the wine brings enough power to pair with the likes of full flavoured soft cheeses or can just as happily be drunk with some olives in the sunshine.

Organic from the outset, Nicolas started using plant infusions against diseases in 2018 and completed biodynamic certification in 2021. Coming from a long line of farmers, he loves animals and is also keen on working alongside them whenever possible. His most densely planted vineyards are ploughed by horse, while sheep roam through the vineyards in winter, eating weeds and fertilising as they go. The élevages were extended in order not to fine or filtrate the wines. This wine is bottled total SO2 of 18mg/l.
