This comes from three parcels (two hectares)
around Courgis: la Menarde, les Malantes and Pattes Loup, hence the name of the
domaine. The vines are 40 years old, issued from a massale selection, and
yields average just 43hh (60 permitted). This wine was aged for 13 months, two
thirds in stainless steel, one third in seven hectos cement eggs. The balance
in 2014 is very good indeed with ripe grapefruit, hint of apricot and saline minerality
possibly due to the underlying limestone. For drinking now to 2018.
