Domaine de la Verpaille - 2016/17
Sourced entirely from a single plot of 100 year old vines grown on a limestone/clay soil. Grapes are harvested at the optimum time in order to ensure concentration of flavour as well as a fine aromatic expression. Natural yeasts undertake a long, slow fermentation in order to allow maximum expression of the terroir. Maturation for 12 months in tank on the fine lees brings added richness and ageing ability. A fine, classic Macon Villages bouquet with aromatic tones of pear, white flowers and a touch of exotic fruits. Gentle, creamy and yet perfectly balanced with a telling cut of fresh acidity and a trace of minerality. Alive, pure and seamless.
