Christophe has a small plot of this rare variety, vines aged around 80 years old on Soil of clay, silex, flint and sand. The wine is pressed direct immediately after harvest and put into barrel on the lees. Alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation occur here, then the various barrels are reassembled into vat, the wine sees another winter in vat and when temperatures rise he bottles (by gravity and no use of a pump). no sulfites added nor anything else for that matter. Wonderful minerality, freshness and texture. Worth holding onto a few bottles if you can manage it as we find his whites blossom beautifully over the years.
