BOIS DES MOINES WHITE
This cuvée is made with grapes grown in south-facing parcels protected from the wind by a pine forest near the château. The varietals of Roussanne, Grenache blanc, Clairette and Bourboulenc produce grapes of a very high quality. Thanks to ageing on the lees, this prestigious cuvée is quite simply exceptional.
Roussanne, Grenache Blanc Clairette, Bourboulenc
Ancient terraces on sandy soil and marly limestone. South-facing, on gently sloping hillsides. The climate is Mediterranean with two dry seasons (one in winter and a longer one in summer) and two rainy seasons (heavy some years in autumn and lighter in spring). Finally, the presence of the Mistral wind throughout the year is a real advantage for the healthy growth of the vines.
The grapes are hand-picked and the harvest is sorted both out in the vineyard and in the cellar before pressing. Cold static settling before transferral of the musts for fermentation in vats and barrels (35%), followed by an ageing period of 8 months on total lees before blending. Filtration before the bottling in April 2020.
Created through strict parcellary and intra-parcellary selection, our Bois des Moines white wine stands out by its delicate nose with grilled and floral notes of hawthorn and liquorice. On the palate, its force comes from a combination of roundness, structure and bite which make this Côtes-du-Rhone-Villages a classy white wine that expresses its terroir.
You can enjoy it as of now or in 5 years’ time. Serve cold to accompany white meats, scallops, Indian cuisine or a cheese platter.
We recommend serving it at around 12°C.
