70 year old macabéo planted on hillsides of gneiss and orthogneiss (north and east-facing which helps to preserve freshness). The wine is aged with no batonnage in a new 500 ltr barrel and several four year old barriques. Delicacy and great freshness characterise this wine, citrus fruits with notes of liquorice, white pepper, lemon thyme, anise, lavender, mint, a mineral cut and a salty, slightly smoky character on the long finish. Unfined and unfiltered. An excellent alternative to white burgundy.
