Bettane & Desseauve 16/20
Aged on the lees in tanks for 10 months
The robe with blonde tints is a prelude to the bouquet of cistus, grapefruit and summer sun-warmed shale. A refreshing attack that swings between mineral flavours, grapefruit and mandarin.The extremely fresh finish is characteristic of this wine.
Both mineral and fruity, this wine goes perfectly with tuna tartare, pan-warmed foie gras and fruit mousse desserts, white peach soup or red Roussillon apricot tart.
The winemaking is carried out in vats at 18° followed by fortification with the addition of alcohol mid-fermentation. This technique helps to conserve the aromatic purity, as well as the balance and finesse of the Grenache gris. Once it has been fortified, Vintage Blanc is matured in vats, using reductive airtight winemaking techniques to preserve the fresh fruity aromas.
