Vinification

Indigenous yeast fermented, Stainless Steel Vat aged

Soil Type

Schist, Clay

Soils in Le Jeau vineyard are made up of clay and schist over schist bedrock.

Vinification takes place using indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tank after 3 day skin maceration. The wine is aged in both neutral oak casks and stainless steel tank. Malo-lactic fermentation is encouraged due to extremely low sulfur levels. Bottled unfined & unfiltered.

Aromatics of stone fruit, citrus and ground minerals in the nose lead into a wine with surprising tension, viscosity and depth. Bright acid levels prevail over a broad spectrum of flavors. This is very poised and complex wine showcasing multi-layered expressions of exotic fruit, nutty aromatics and crushed minerals.
