  • This vibrant Chardonnay is characterized by great minerality, layered with bright citrus notes, floral hints, and toasted nuts through to a vibrant, saline finish. 50% of the grapes underwent skin-contact maceration in new French oak 300-litre barrels, lasting for four to five hours at 5°C, obtaining excellent extraction of flavours and aromas. Fermentation occurred with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures of 16 to 20°C with daily batonnage to impart texture and complexity. The remaining 50% was vinified in terracotta amphora to retain the freshness and purity of the fruit.

Winery

The Chardonnay grapes come from the Cotes Catalans, the principle IGP allowing only mono-varietal wines. The vines thrive at an altitude of 385 metres elevation in the Haute Valle de l'Agly in the Roussillon region. The climate is Mediterranean, strongly influenced by cooling coastal breezes combined with mountain freshness from the foothills of the Pyrenees, which balance the hot, arid summers. The terroir is made up of a mosaic of black schist soils dating back to the Cretaceous period. The schistous marl produces shallow soils, which force the vines to send their roots deep in search of water and nutrients. The vineyard is certified organic, and no herbicides or chemicals are used. Yields are kept low to ensure a good concentration of pure fruit flavours, and the grapes are hand-harvested.
