" Pleasant, floral, light but ripe, slightly vegetal but not that peppery, easy-going but with just a modicum of tannic grip, fresh but silky, red berries and peach, very good length. This cuvée is made with grapes from the vines of Beaumont-en-Véron, to which we add a combination of press and free-run juice from the alluvial soil of the left bank of the Vienne. This particular blend lends this wine its harmony and balance. Grape destemming without crushing, 5 days of skin maceration at cool temperatures, a rapid start to fermentation, at a maximum temperature of 25°C for 10 days - the fermentation is sometimes interrupted before the entire transformation of sugar into alcohol - make this a highly aromatic wine which also benefits from the tannic support of the press wines. Malolactic fermentation takes place in vats after the wine is drawn off and during the winter this wine is naturally chilled. A number of rackings, together with in-vat maturation and bottling at the end of the spring, and this wine is ready for summer enjoyment! "
