Winemaking and ageing
Due to the particularly warm weather conditions in 2022, the choice of a late start to the harvest was beneficial, resulting in 100% botrytised grapes, ideally concentrated in aroma and sugar. The yields are 10 hl/ha. Following the harvest from 17 to 27 October, fermentation took place for 25 to 30 days in French oak barrels. The wine was aged for 10 months in barrels (1/3 of which are new), followed by 8 months in stainless steel vats.
Sauvignon Blanc (5%).
Complex and fruity, this wine is characterised by its freshness and its notes of apricots and citrus fruit, combined with an acidic framework.
