Elaboration

A pied de cuve is prepared in the vineyard with the grapes’ wild yeast a week before the harvest. When the grapes enter the winery they are pressed directly and moved into a stainless steel vat, and the pied de cuve is added as a fermentation starter. It is bottled before the fermentation ends, so it can finish fermenting in the bottle and the carbonic can be conserved. It is “degorjat” and closed again with a bottle cap.

Tasting note

Deeper colored, a light pink hue. The nose more open, this wine is more aromatic, with more fruit and spiciness. On the palate fuller bodied, richer and rounder, quite powerful. The finish is intense and long, but with a remarkable freshness created by the salinity of the wine.
