Chrysopée Blanc 2017, Sélection Parcellaire
Complex on the nose with notes of fleshy fruit such (apricots, peaches), followed by a floral bouquet. Full of minerality and salinity with great length on the finish.
The grapes come from vines growing in very old schist from the Primary era.
The Languedoc Roussillon region bucked the trend this year. Unlike most French wine regions, the Roussillon was spared disastrous weather and extreme temperatures. Production in 2017 was higher than in 2016 and the vintage is of great quality.
Vinification is carried out by the pressing of whole bunches. After a light settling at 12°C for 24 hours, the wine goes into demi-muid barrels. Alcoholic fermentation lasts several weeks. Ageing in demi-muid barrels lasts six months with stirring up of the lees (bâtonnage) over the first two months.
