Vineyard Notes: La Carrée is sourced from a very small parcel (1/3 hectare) of Roussanne that was planted in 1991 to 4,000 vines per hectare. The domaine has been certified organic since 2002; it also practices biodynamic farming techniques.

Winemaking Notes: The grapes are directly pressed into concrete tanks. Fermentation occurs naturally with indigenous yeast. The wine matures in neutral oak barrels for 12 months. The wine is not fined or filtered. A minimal amount of SO2 is added at bottling.

Tasting Notes: La Carree Blanc is a richly textured white wine. The complex palate offers tropical fruit, fresh mint, brioche, and minerality. Slightly reductive as of 2020, this gorgeous white will only get better with age.
