Velvet White 2021
60% Roussanne – 40% Grenache blanc
Beautiful pale yellow robe.
Subtle, fine and delicate nose dominated by citrus fruit, and notes of white flowers.
A mild fine palate, nicely aromatic, with pleasant tangy freshness.
The finish, specific to the vintage 2021, is fresh and mineral.

Wine & Food Pairings
Ideal for aperitif, to sublimate some grilled fish. Matches very well cheese, such as morbier du Jura. And of course very enjoyable with some fondue savoyarde.
The Winemaker’s corner
Soil: Fluvial deposits dating back to the Pliocene. Angular stones and siliceous pebbles from the Montagne noire.
Grapes of two varieties are harvested separately depending on their ripeness and tastes. Morning freshness allows to preserve the juice from oxydation at the early stage of winemaking process. Vibrating hopper allows to get free run juice and to chill it down immediately. Then grapes are directly put into the press in which maceration is carried out under an inert gas, and pressed with greatest care. Beginning of the press is incorporated to the free run juice. The rest of the press is not incorporated (depending on quality).
Fermentation at low temperature (16-17ºC) in stainless steel vats to preserve all the aromas. Blending post fermentation.
Keep: 1 – 2 years
