Lionel Rhedon the owner of this small domaine has a good reputation as a grower and sells most of his fruit to negociants. What he does not sell, all of his old vines (45 years or older), go into this wine. The wine is very traditional, balanced with good acidity a touch of minerality. The care given to the vineyards is clearly expressed in the purity of the orchard fruit with pear playing a dominant note. On the finish , which is terrific, there is a real nice mineral note that is almost flintly. This is the perfect wine for the summer, just as an aperitif or with a lighter fare off of the BBQ. This shrimp, fish, poultry vegetables….. boy am I hungry.
