Les Infirmières Blanc 2017, Sélection Parcellaire
A complex nose with aromas of stone-fruit and citrus with mineral notes (gunflint). A delectable, rich, deep wine, underpinned by lovely acidity.
Silty-clay soil with clay-limestone under layer. The grapes for this wine were sourced from parcels located in the village of Pourcieux at the foot of Mount Aurélien.
At the opposite of the 2016 vintage, 2017 was characterised by a harsh winter which caused the bud burst to occur seven days later than in 2016. The 2017 delivered remarkably powerful and tropical style of Vermentino. Similar to the 2016’s, the Clairettes are round and floral with roasted notes and a touch of hazelnut.
Harvesting is carried out by hand and takes place in the morning to preserve aromatic freshness. Direct pressing, light settling. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out in barrels.
