This cuvée is called ‘Les Tisserands’ after the silk weavers who created the wonderful silk fabrics by weaving the silk thread obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the silk worm.
This wine won a silver medal with a score of 90 points at the Decanter World Wine Award 2021 and the following tasting note :
“A big grassy crunch, which grows well on the palate and fills the head. With the right nibbles this has an edge of mineral heft that will be very pleasing to many. Notes of Citrus, lemon and apricot on the finish.”
Very pale with shimmers of green.
Sauvignon Blanc 70%, Vermentino 15%, Grenache Blanc 15%
Mix of limestone and clay/limestone
Immediate pressing then cold stabilisation before fermentation.
In tank on fine lees for 6 months.
Mostly early morning machine harvesting; some hand-harvesting.
Great with shellfish or as an accompaniment to creamy chicken dishes.
Vibrant on the nose with the aromas associated with the world of thiols: boxwood, exotic fruits, white peach.
