Futures

Behind a fine lees reduction, tension is fully emerging.The power of the Marsanne on the entry elaborates the mid-palate smoothness. The persistent finish sets off wonderfully the fine bitterness. Stunning!

Tasting

Colour : intense golden yellow, with hints of green and gold.
Nose : very intense, hot shingles, toffee, very ripe, fruity lemon with floral overtones of acacia and hawthorn.
Mouth : well-rounded start, full bodied, very complex with overtones of ripe fruits, spices and roasting. Very long in the mouth, with a fresh final note.
According to the vintage, the wine can be kept from 30 to 60 years, indeed from 50 to 75 years.

Vintage 2016

Grape variety

Marsanne.
The old vines (60 to 70 years old) guarantee low yields and a quality production.

Soil

The grapes producing “De l’Orée” come from “Les Murets” plot.
This soil is made up with very old fluvioglacial alluvial deposits.

Harvest

Hand harvesting at maturity.

Winemaking

After pressing, the must is cold-settling for around 24 hours. About 50% is vinified in big wooden barrels (600 liters) with regular stirrings of the lees, the rest is in vats.

Maturing

Maturing on lees with regular stirrings for 6 months.
Before bottling, the ageing in casks is checked by frequent tastings.
The maturing lasts between 10 and 12 months.
