Vineyard Notes: This wine is sourced from 2.4 hectares that were planted in early 1990's. The domaine has been certified organic since 2002; it also practices biodynamic farming techniques.
Winemaking Notes: The grapes are directly pressed to large concrete tanks where all of the varieties ferment together with indigenous yeast. After fermentation, the wine ages in neutral oak barrels for 18 months. A minimal addition of sulfites is added at bottling. The wine is not fined or filtered.
Tasting Notes: Le Grand Blanc is quite complex with many layers expressing ripe yellow fruit, bright minerality, crème brulee, and savory herbal notes. The body is on the fuller side, coating the mouth with flavor. The finish is long showing a slight spice. Le Grand Blanc will go excellent with cheese, poultry and pork.
