Constance White 2016

17,00

Constance, sixth generation of our family, was born in 2014 : granddaughter of Jean-Pierre, the great granddaughter of Irene, the descendant of Louis and Gabriel. This wine is dedicated to her.

Constance is unique (or almost) : only 925 bottles, all numbered. Beautiful to taste! And especially wonderful emotions of joy and happiness!

 

Grape varietes

35% Chardonnay, 30% Sauvignon, 35% Viognier

 

Terroir

A selection of our estate’s best plots.
Alluvium (clay, sand and gravel) originating from the river Lirou creating rich and humid soil and colluvium (from eroded calcareous rock) creating quality soil, deep and well drained.

Vinification

Harvested early in the morning at the coolest time of day, around 5am. Direct pressing after a short period of maceration. the grape must is chilled (at around 8°c) for 36 hours to allow for settling.
After selection of the clarified juices, the alcoholic fermentation takes place in steel vats under controlled temperatures (30%) and in new french oak barrels (70%) with batonnage (gentle stirring).

 

Ageing

the new french oak barrels come exclusively from the Bernard cooperage, a family run business settled in the heart of the charentes region of france since 1936. the ageing in the barrels lasts 5 months and brings complex aromas and lovely strength.

 

Tasting notes

Beautifully golden robe with a bounty of colors.
A strong nose – roasted, spicy (coriander seeds, curry).
the oak is elegantly present. Lovely aromas of quince jelly, dried apricots, pepper and spices. A generous and ample wine.
Between 10 and 15 caudalies for the nish.

 

Food pairing

Pork let mignon with chanterelle mushrooms, black truf e capon, pan-fried foie gras, comté cheese aged 42 months.
