Les Milets exudes the fresh, zesty style with crisp minerality that is often emulated the world over.
The vines are 15-20 years old and are located on the left bank of the River Cher, South-West of Quincy. They receive a great amount of sunlight and are planted on the prominent hillocks comprised of gravely alluvial deposits. All vineyard processes are carried out in an environmental manner, adapted to each terroir.
The 2019 was overall a good vintage in Central Loire, despite the frost episodes in early spring. The summer was very hot, with the heat stress impacting the overall yields but the remaining fruit quality was outstanding, yielding balanced and harmonious wines.
Following gentle pressing, fermentation takes place under controlled conditions at around 18° C. The wine is then aged on its lees for a minimum of 4 months before a single pass filtering prior to bottling.
