Grapes for this cuvee were sourced from a friend and quality grower on the granitic slopes at the back of Fleurie. Apart from that it is made exactly the same way with carbonic fermentation of around 3 weeks. We have the unsulphured bottling: fresh off the boat and barely shaken. Light powdery pink floral tones with subtle red berry forest fruits, as well as sous bois and freshly turned earth. Certainly showing a more herbal edge, which is probably due to the sourcing from a higher elevated vineyard than those of the domaine. The palate is super fresh with a cool herbal undercurrent. The lively mineral acidity sits beneath the subtle flavours of wild raspberry and sour cherry fruits. There is a lot of minerality that builds nicely, becoming almost stony on the finish. Fragrance builds too as the wine warms in the mouth, bringing the floral and musky spice tones forward. A worthy rescue cuvée for this tricky vintage. - Importer Note
