    40 year old vines here, planted at high altitude (400m) on steep schist based hillsides.  A perfectly balanced weight and tension, with smoky notes on the nose, very frank and pure on the palate, with ripe lemony fruit, and intense mineral character (hot stone and saline) that really tugs on the salivary glands.  For drinking now to 2018.

    This is the domaine’s top white cuvée from a great terroir – a south-facing terraced vineyard on a vertiginous 60˚ slope where the soil is derived from metamorphic mica schists.  Yields are just 25hh, and the wine is aged in three to five year old barrels for a year. There is a great balance of dense fruit, apricot, pears, spice with a lick of acidity and a lip-smacking salinity on the finish.  For drinking now to 2021.
