Tradition white (Cru – Lirac)
Our white Cru – Lirac: Tradition
This wine is a harmonious blend of Grenache blanc and Clairette.
The vines, aged around 30, are located on terraces and slopes mainly composed of large round pebbles and gravel with clay
and limestone subsoil. The maximum yield for the Lirac appellation is 41hl/ha.
Cold maceration before pressing. Natural static cold debourbage. Alcoholic fermentation under controlled temperature (16°c). Stirring of the lees after fermentation. 25 % of this “cuvee” is fermented and aged in 300L barrels for 6 months.
- Robe: crystalline, pale yellow and limpid.
- Aroma: white peach, white flowers (linden tree), mineral with toasty, vanilla notes.
- Palate: fruity, smooth, full, remarkably balanced. Vanilla and butter notes mingle with fruit (prunes and dried fruit). The finish is long and harmonious.
Can be drunk as an aperitif or with fish (sea bass with fennel, grilled red mullet). Try also with cheese such as Pélardon, or Comté.
