SAUVIGNON Les Roches How to drink it…

Beside the medieval ruins of Pons, with a dominant view of the woods, the streams and the valleys. If not, you could choose to savour it on the banks of the Soute where the roots of our culture come from.

Elaboration

Freshly picked grapes macerate in vats at a very low temperature during 12 to 36 hours before they are slowly pressed. The alcoholic fermentation starts after the must has settled, at a very low temperature (18°C) respecting primary aromas such as the thiols of the Sauvignon blanc. The wine is then kept 6 months in vats on fine lees in order to bring it structure and complexity. The bottling is done with all respects to the wine, with a slight filtration and nitrogen inerting.
