    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 2015 is very good indeed with ripe grapefruit, hint of apricot and saline minerality possibly due to the underlying limestone. Available November 2017. For drinking now to 2019.
