Hey you Girl with the brown shoes on
Chardonnay 100% pressurage direct. 12,4% alc. 1,10 volatile. A long and slow press of 3 days in the old wooden pressoir of Gérald Oustric – The juice of the grapes was running all the time, so no maceration. Following fermentation in old barriques in our cellar for almost 4 years, no soutirage all fermentation has been on the yeast (sur lie). Bottled the 1st of July 2020, still a little bit of sugar left, therefore both cork and crown cap on the bottles. A white wine with a very solid and almost classic expression, the long fermentation in barriques has given the wine a nose similar to white burgundy wines. Even with the sugar that is left, the wine doesn’t ferment any more and this helps on the other hand to create a balance with the acidity.

Poetry of Silence
100% Pinot Noir. 25% distemmed grapes of Pinot Noir and 75% pressurage direct. Macerated for one night. Not enough for the juice to take color or tannins, but of cause the structure of the grapes. After the press it was put directly into a fiber cuve, then soutirage in June 2017 and transferred to age in old barriques.Bottled in july 2020. So a little more than 3 years in barrels. Non ouillé, so no topping up the barrels. We simply left the wine to take oxidation. It is an oxidative wine, not vin jaune, but very well oxidative. Still with a taste of white fruits and long slaty bitterness – very balanced.
