District : Langoiran

Vineyard surface area : 10 hectares

Terroir : Clay-limestone on limestone molasse with Asterias of the Oligocene

Grape varieties : Sémillon

Average vine age : 30 years

Viticulture : Traditional Bordeaux-style vine training, with two canes and a flat arch. Controlled grassing-down of the vine rows and mechanical working of the soil, to improve the soilsvitality and biodiversity. Manual “green harvesting”, for a homogeneous distribution and proper aeration of the grape bunches.

Vinification : The grapes are harvested manually at their maximum aromatic potential. Maceration of the berries under inert gas to capture the best of the grapeskins, then delicate and fragmented pressing. The must is clarified and then put into 225L French barrels. Regular stirring during the alcoholic fermentation in barrels and aging on the lees for 6 months with one stirring per week.

Ageing : Aging on laths in bottle during 16 months in the underground limestone cellars. Riddling then disgorging without any dosage

Tasting notes :
With a beautiful bright gold color, this wine reveals a delicate nose of white fruits and citrus fruits as well as subtle spicy notes. ‘O' Brut Nature has a very pleasantpurity, with fine, airy bubbles and a great minerality in the mouth.
Ideal as an aperitif. It will also perfectly accompany seafood, raw fish or a fresh goat cheese.
