Story

The wine
Pinot Blanc Vrai is a forgotten grape variety that has been revived by passion for the land and know-how.
It is the white variety of Pinot Noir first observed in 1895 in Chassagne-Montrachet and then in 1896 in Nuits-Saint-Georges where it was differentiated from the Chardonnay variety.
Vinification
Harvesting of the grapes at maturity with fresh fruit aromas. Cold stabilisation of the must (0°C) for a week to enhance these aromas. Fermentation at a controlled temperature (18°C) to preserve the aromatic potential of the grapes.
Ageing
Aged on fine lees before bottling.
Varietals
Pinot Blanc Vrai : 100%
