2019 VDF 'Sans Titre'
Altesse from Bugey, in the commune of Corbonod. Clay-limestone terroir. Crushed then pressed in a vertical ratchet press, then aged for 9 months in fiber glass vats. Zero SO2. SANS TITRE (UNTITLED in english) for the Highness who does not have her royal title.
Clear colour, yellow and luminous. Yellow crisp apples and rocks. Plus pears, lemon and a nice flinty reduction – very fine and minimal – noble. To taste – clean, fresh and pure. Again the acidity is medium minus, making it soft and approachable. Has a certain energy about it. Apple notes, lemon, lime, rocks and nice tension on the finish. The imprint of limestone hovers at the end. Lightly floral, a bit of mineral detail that is like white pepper but not quite – more like grainy rock. Delicate and elegant.
