Wine Details

Occultum Lapidem Blanc 2017

AOP Côtes-du-Roussillon
  • 75cl bottle

Stone fruit aromas of apricot and peach with a flora touch and a delicate roasted note, the palate is fresh and full of minerality. It is a well-balanced wine thanks to the freshness and the fat of the White Grenache.

Vineyards

The grapes mainly come from the area of Latour de France, which is composed of gneiss soils.

Vintage

This year, it was the climate and its extremes that gave us an incredible and very surprising vintage. 2017 was a year in which the elegance and balance of the wines and the softness of the tannins contrasted with a growing season of extreme weather phenomena and an exceptionally small harvest in the south.

Winemaking

After pressing, we carry out a natural cold static settling at 10°C. Fermentation is carried out at 18°C, 70% in stainless steel vats and 30% in "demi-muids" (600L barrels). No malolactic fermentation.
