||The thin, well drained top soil is lying on a layer of limestone with a significant presence of clay with a water-retaining function.
||25% whole bunch, short cold maceration, two "pigeage" a day at the start of the alcoholic fermentation, then pump-overs during maceration for a gentle extraction.
||18 months in French oak casks. 55% new, light and long soft toast from Allier and Jupilles forests. No fining, no filtration.
||It goes well with meat-based first and second courses, veal-based dishes with red wine sauce for a nice sensory experience.
