WHITE WINES


LES DAMES BLANCHES DU SUD 2017

TERROIR
Ancient terraces of the Rhone, clay-limestone soils 
HARVEST
We harvest the various grape varieties from this cuvee in mid September to achieve the perfect ripeness of each variety.
The quality of the harvest was beautiful for the whites this year.
We harvested early in the morning to avoid the high daytime temperatures.

BLEND
Viognier (50%), Marsanne (25%), White Grenache (15%) and Roussanne (10%).
VINIFICATION
Each varietal is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for approximately 3 weeks at between 12 and 15°C.  The lees are stirred frequently. First bottling in late November.

Full–bodied on the palate, rich, very fruity, and opulent.
Fresh and balanced with powerful aromas of apricot, white peach, and floral notes.
