Chrysopée Blanc 2019, Sélections Parcellaires
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.
An extremely hot vintage in the south of France, with rainfall at the end of the season providing much needed freshness.
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.
