Origin: south/southeast-facing vines in terraces overlooking the village of Chavanay. “La Petite Côte” is not a district but a cuvée brand.

• Soils: muscovite-rich granite.

• Varieties planted: viognier.

• Cultivation: high-density planting (8,000-10,000 vines per hectare). No insecticides or pesticides, few treatments (depending on weather), small amount of organic-only fertiliser, with respect of soil and vine balance. Vigour and yield control, leaf-thinning and green harvesting to promote grape maturation.

• Vinification: the grapes are hand-picked and sorted, then pressed and left to settle. Alcoholic-fermented in barriques, no racking, regular stirring. Malolactic fermentation also done in barriques, with native yeasts.

• Maturing: 9 months in barriques, on the lees, no racking.

• Alcohol content: 13% Alc./Vol.

• Output: approx. 30,400 bottles.

• Style: Exuberant and pleasant nose full of ripe fruit, candied apricots, peach. Honey notes aroused by citrus zest. Seducing mouth due to the lemon’s freshness. Nice retro on dried apricot. A well balanced and harmonious set.

• Ageing: drink "on the fruit” up to 3-4 years.

• Food match: delicate fish (e.g. carpaccio of marinated salmon and bream).

  • List Price: $62.75
