La Ponce blanc

Côtes du Rhône

2021 – sold out

 

Vineyard

Blend of different small plots with clay-limestone soils, around the winery in Rasteau. Lieu-dit “La Ponce”, located at an altitude of 340m.

Winemaking

The grapes are hand-picked and sorted at the vineyard, before sunrise to make the most of cool night-time temperatures. They are fully destemmed. There is gentle pressing and cold settling, then the must goes into stainless tanks for fermentation at a low temperature (16-18°C).

Tasting notes

Pale golden colour. A nose of juicy white and citrus fruits. The palate is fresh, mineral and crisp, followed by flavours of white peach and pear. A moreish and refreshing white wine.

Food pairing

Soft fresh ewe’s cheese with melon and fennel jelly – California Salad – Scallops with lime juice – Shellfish – Peach clafoutis with rosemary.
