La Vieille Ferme Blanc 2018

The vintage

The 2018 vintage is characterised by exceptional weather conditions. The rather mild winter made it possible to prune the vineyard following the lunar calendar - according to the principles of biodynamics - favouring a balanced vegetation. Flowering took place in the best possible conditions, with a historically abundant grape output. A few rainy episodes at the end of the spring complicated things a little with an attack of mildew, but the good weather then settled down until harvest, which took place under idyllic conditions, making it possible to harvest each plot at perfect maturity between August 22nd and October 5th. The wines are beautiful, great typicity for each terroir.

Description

If you enjoy quaffable wines, this one is ideal as an aperitif or paired with a simple meal

Process

The grapes are lightly crushed, then pressed in a pneumatic press, prior to clarification of the must and cool fermentation.
The wine remains in stainless steel tanks until the month of January, when the wine is bottled after fining.

Tasting notes

Delicate nose with notes of white flowers and citrus. Well balanced in the mouth, it is fresh, with great vivacity and a hint of bitterness with salty aromas. Nice length.
