The clusters are harvested by hand and pressed whole-cluster. The cold settling is followed by racking. The must then ferments at a low temperature in tank to preserve the fruit and its elegant, stony quality. The wine remained on its fine lees, finished a natural malo-lactic conversion and was aged for 9 months before it was estate bottled.
Pouilly-Fuissé, Je t’aime! Pale lemon ricochet. Stone citrus interplay. Purely graceful bouquet. Sip, trip, bloom. Silky atin crochet. Long length lime crisp sachet. Forms suavely swank soirée. The glass might break but the wine sings still!
