We wanted to allow the Grolleau Gris grape to express itself in a different and unexpected (‘inattendu’) manner and this fruity sweet wine is the result. Delicious with or without food, whatever you fancy!
100 % Grolleau Gris – 60hL/ha
Silt, sandy-clay with quartzite blocks
Soil maintained through a hoeing and/or shallow ploughing of the soil
The grapes are picked entirely by hand and then sorted.
The grapes are dried on a bed of straw for at least 2 weeks to obtain a greater sugar concentration while preserving the freshness of the fruit
After pressing, the alcoholic fermentation, and then 6 months ageing, are carried out in barrels. Filtered, but not fined
Pale gold hue
Complex nose with candied and predominantly peachy notes.
The wine develops exotic and candied notes on the palate. Long and fresh finish.
Best served at a temperature between 8 and 10°C
Open it just to treat yourself. It can be cellar-aged.
Terrine of semi-cooked foie gras with quince compote,
Tourtons (fritters) stuffed with Bleu d’Auvergne cheese,
