Francois Crochet

Wine Making

After a manual harvest, the grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press. Ageing is done on fine lees in stainless temperature-controlled tanks. 3 hilling up are done per month. The wine is then filtered.

Terroir

This wine is made from a number of different parcels scattered across the appellation. The topsoils range from limestone marls, Kimmeridgian stones and hard limestones mixed into varying soils of clay, thin gravels and heavy sands scattered near the village of Bué. Also, there is a little dose coming from silex soils as well.  The climate in this area is one of the cooler areas but most of the sites face towards the south, which helps the grapes find their ripeness.

Tasting

This wine is dry and fruity with floral aromas, very developed, which, after a few ageing months, the wine will be at its best expression.

How to Drink & Serve

Serve the wine at 10°C and pair with Cheese, Seafood and shellfish.
