‘Les Fumées Blanches’ (meaning ‘white smoke’) owes its name to the morning mist that covers the Sauvignon Blanc vines at the foot of the Montagne Noire between the Atlantic and the Pyrenees.
By machine (between 4 a.m. and 9 a.m.) to take advantage of the cool temperatures and limit oxidation phenomena. Maceration on the skins (8-12 hours) and/or cold stabilisation at 8-10°C for several days. Pneumatic pressing. At 16-18°C with selected yeast to reveal the typical character of Sauvignon Blanc. On fine lees for several weeks before blending. The wine is kept away from oxygen throughout the winemaking process.
Light yellow colour with hints of green.
The citrus typical of Sauvignon Blanc dominates, with lemon, lime and exotic fruit aromas (pineapple).
Mineral notes (chalky and smoky). Elegant and lively on the palate with good balance of freshness.
Beautifully lingering with a citrus zest and mineral finish.
