Wine:Predominantly made from Grenache Gris grapes, the 2015 Chrysopée is a great Mediterranean white wine. Very intense, almost golden, it offers from the first glance the height of its ambitions. For it is a wine with a gastronomic vocation, with rich, ripe and fresh flavors of fruit, which takes on these attributes in the palate, with an unstoppable freshness, vibrancy and salinity. A superb Mediterranean white wine, to be savored or kept for a few more years.
Vinification:Hand harvested in the morning in small crates, pressed in whole bunches, lightly settled at 12°C for 24 hours, matured in demi-muids for 6 months with lees stirring for the first 2 months.
Color:Golden yellow of good intensity.
Nose:Intense aromas of apricot and peach mixed with floral and almond notes.
Palate:Ample and mineral , this wine reveals a remarkable consistency, freshness, vibrancy and salinity. It is a superb Mediterranean white for gastronomy.
Temperature:Serve between 10 and 12°C.
Food and wine pairing:Creamy cockle risotto, codfish with chorizo, zarzuela, grilled fish.
Cellar aging:From now until 2023
