The grapes for this cuvée come from a section of Clos Roche Blanche planted in 1973. The cépage is roughly 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Chardonnay. The grapes are whole cluster pressed into stainless steel where the juice ferments slowly until the spring. Malolactic conversion took place before the wine was fully dry. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal additional Sulphur. Textured, nuanced and lovely. Laurent's premier white. Fresh and acid-forward with a super generous mid-palate.
