Vintage 2020 :

2020 has been turned into a mayhem with the Covid 19 crisis, but meanwhile, vine cultivation was doing great. We had a great harvest, caused by a mild and temperate Spring, which helped our vines resisting both the drought and the high summer temperatures without any maturity delay. Though we had to wait the end of the season for them to mature perfectly, the sunny weather allowed us to do so.

This year’s white wines are elegant and fresh, carried by a nice structure. The wine’s fatness is developed all along the vinification.


The grapes are picked fresh, early in the morning to be pressed at the right temperature, between 8 and 14 Celsius degrees, to avoid any chance premature oxidation of their juices. This way keep the individual character of each variety. Grapes are then placed in a pneumatic press which carefully preserves them from excessive crushing. The so-called ‘must’ passes into stainless steel tanks which are temperature controlled, then it is racked. This process eliminates any coarse particles which would suppress any delicate flavour.

We are now at the crucial stage where the alcoholic fermentation changes grape juice into the wine you will be able to taste today. Yeast is about to work for about two weeks, at temperatures between 12 and 16 degrees. Sustaining these temperatures allows the yeasts to work very slowly, to their full scope, and thereby the wines develop their maximum flavours – alchemy at work.

For this wine, we wanted to keep its light sweetness which is why we stopped the alcoholic fermentation prematurely in order to give it a fruity hint carried by the sugary residues.

Tasting notes:

Appearance : a pale-yellow color with shiny silver reflection

Aroma : Fruity and exuberant, grapefruit notes are blended with scents of fresh mango.

Taste : The onset is clear and lively with a dominance of exotic fruits. We are seduced by a sweet final with mixed notes of sweetness and freshness, leaving on the tongue a nice touch of acidity.

Food pairing : In aperitif, with a fresh goat cheese, a red dahl with fresh vegetables, and if you are a gourmet, a mango cheesecake.

Can be kept up to 2 years to keep optimal freshness
