Single plot in Chavanay, planted in terraces on the hillside of Verlieu. The vines are planted on "Muscovite Granite" allowing a nice complexity aromatic.

Soil: Granite à muscovite

Grape Variety: Viognier

Viticulture: high-density planting (8,000-10,000 vines per hectare). No insecticides or pesticides, few treatments (depending on weather), small amount of organic-only fertiliser, with respect of soil and vine balance. Vigour and yield control, leaf-thinning and green harvesting to promote grape maturation

Vinification: the grapes are picked at perfect ripeness and sorted by hand. Only the best press juices are kept. Alcoholic and malolactic fermented in barriques with native yeasts.

Maturing : 12 Months in barrel and medium wooden cask

Olfactory Tasting: Expressive nose with flavors of withe flowers. Flavors of greedy yellow fruit

Tasting: Nice mouth coating style. The richness of the soil is surrounded by the aromatic power of the viognier. Beautifoul bitters reinforce the length.

Aging : Drink on the fruit flavors(3 to 4 years) but can be aged up to 10 years.

Pairing : Fish (Seabass or Halibut), with meat.(Poultry rissoto with porcini mushrooms, balsamic sauce)
