The wine is left in the barrels for 7 years without topping these up for the evaporation over time. A ‘voile’, a layer of yeast cells appears on top, resulting in a controlled oxidation. This type of oxidative wines is often characterized by an enormous aromatic complexity, and an intense, dry mouthfeel. This wine is frank with a depth of salinity continuing to petrified fruit and driftwood. Less nutty than other examples with plenty of white florals. Mouthwateringly dry with a fresh finish. Pair with almost anything; turbot with beurre blanc, rabbit terrine, chocolate mousse.
