CLOS MARIA BLANC 2016
Estate Wine made from an entire vineyard of 2.5 ha. combining old slate terraces (98%) and granite (2%), at 500 m. of altitude, confering notes of minerality and spiceness.
- Vintage 2015
2016 was an outstanding vintage due to exceptional weather conditions, cool and rainy spring followed by a warm and dry summer. High thermal amplitude affected very positively to the aromatics. Also the sunny side of the vineyards make this white to have big structure with balanced acidity.
Grapes were hand-picked, clusters were manually sorted in the vineyard and in the winery. Cold maceration for 6 hs. 70% co-fermented in stainless steel tanks and 30% in 225 L. new French oak barrels. Partially aged in new Frenck oak barrels, for 6 months. Blended after 12 months.
