White 2016 - Fleur de l'Amaurigue vintage

  • 1.

    Wine making

    Typical Burgundy wine-making is done on this special Cuvée produced from a selection of old vines. Short skin maceration that ensures better extraction of the varietal aromas of the grape varieties followed by slow pressing at low pressure in order to extract only the best juices. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in 228-litre French oak barrels. The wine is then aged on fine lees for 6 months in the same barrels which gives it a surprising complexity with slightly roasted aromas.

    Tasting Comments

    This unusual white wine is produced from a selection of Rolle and harvested by hand. This results in a very aromatic white wine. Hints of honey and pear on the nose reveal a pleasant maturity in the vintage. In the mouth, it starts with peach and pineapple aromas, then hints of vanilla and light toasty flavours. The incredible fat and long taste in the mouth are the result of barrel ageing on fine lees.

    Tasting Comments

    It is characterised by an expressive nose with an array of floral then fruity notes with touches of pear and apricot. In the mouth it has a pleasant freshness that makes it vivacious. White fruits dominate the mouth with a round, pleasantly long finish. The result is a balanced and aromatic white wine.
