||The Comtesse is planted on a prime south facing marly and chalky slope in the village of Chavignol.
||The grapes are hand-picked.
||After racking at low temperature, the wine ferments for 10 days in stainless steel tanks at temperatures ranging from 15 to 20 °C (59 to 68 °F). Neither yeasting nor malolactic fermentation is used.
||The wine is matured on its fine lees for 5 months and is then vacuum-bottled (exclusively in darkly tinted bottles). Only high quality natural corks are used. The wine undergoes additional maturation for at least one month in the bottle before being offered for sale.
||Really great with grilled fish, roasted bass with fennel, seafood.
