Detailed information

Vintage

The cold and wet spring resulted in late, slow flowering. The hot summer followed by storms in September helped to reboot the maturing process. Vigilance was at its peak until the harvests, which count among the latest in recent years.

Grape varieties

Muscat à petits grains

Terroir

Vines selected from the southerly slopes of the Appellation.
Soils made up of stony limestone, sandstone, sand and marl. The strong Mistral wind in this area plays a part by protecting this fragile grape variety from disease.

Winemaking

Grapes where entirely manually harvested when they were fully ripe. Part of the vintage underwent cold process skin maceration to promote the development of aromas. Fermentation under strictly controlled temperatures (16/18 °C). At 115 g per litre of residual sugar, the fermenting process was voluntarily stopped through fast cooling of the vat to 0 °C and through mutage, by adding alcohol.
