Wine Details

Occultum Lapidem Blanc 2016

AOP Côtes-du-Roussillon
  • 75cl bottle

Stone fruit aromas of apricot and peach shine through on the nose with a delicately roasted floral touch. 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 was full of surprises and will remain ingrained in our memories due to its unpredictable weather! It was a true winemakers’ vintage and the month of September made it what it is. The northern reds show a classic and pure style, with exceptional potential.

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). Prevention of malolactic fermentation.
