Dégustation : la robe est jaune paille, brillante. Le nez est fin, profond, sur les fruits blancs rôtis au beurre, la pierre humide et les embruns marins. La bouche éclate de fraîcheur dès l'attaque, renforcée par un perlant assez marqué, avant d'offrir une bouche ample aussi friande que savoureuse, avec l'impression de croquer dans un fruit frais et juteux, sur une aromatique mêlant la pomme et la pulpe de citron. On retrouve ces dernières dans une finale tonique très Triple A, mariant harmonieusement l'Amertume, l'Astringence et l'Acidité du citron et de la pomme verte, et se prolongeant longuement sur des notes salines et épicées.

What is an author wine?
This can be so diverse depending on the personality of their sire, that it is easier to define what it is not. An author wine is anything but a standard, stereotypical wine, made to please as many people as possible. It is therefore rarely produced in millions of copies, copying itself from vintage in vintage.
An author wine is therefore a wine that does not look like that of the neighbor. Which from year to year will evolve according to the vagaries of the weather and the mood of the author - the two that can be linked. Because the author does not rely on market studies to carry out his boat. He makes his wine as he feels, as he likes, as he can, sometimes ... and too bad if he does not please everyone.
This is why author wines are sometimes classified as "table wine" or "France wine". Because the winemaker did not plan the authorized grape variety*, makes the assembly or vinification recommended in the name **. He is often a bit rebellious, our author. But that is why we like it! ... That said, author's wines are not systematically marginal: they are present in most of the appellations, and can be part of the elite of these this***. Because they are not content to have personality: they are good, in addition! With in general aDegree of TorchabilityVery high: we never tire of it at the end of the first sip.
As author's wines are not chaptalized, levied, hacked ... They can have very different profiles depending on the vintage. It is up to us (resellers and consumers) to accept them as they are, and to remain faithful to the producers, because they need us to continue their activity.
