Description of wine 🍷
Cépage : 100% Pinot Gris
Terroir : Argilo-calcaire, climat continental.
Conduite de la vigne : Taille guyot / Lutte raisonnée / Culture des sols.
Mode de vinification : Vendange mécanique au plus frais de la journée / Pressurage direct / Stabulation et débourbage à froid / Fermentation à température contrôlée.
Elevage : Elevage sur lies en cuve avec batonnage.
Dégustation : la robe est or clair, brillante. Le nez est fin, profond, mêlant l'écorce de citron confit à des notes de pétard et de sésame grillé (réduction), et une touche marine / saline en bonus. Et même un brin de romarin. La bouche est élancée, étirée par un fil invisible , tout en offrant une matière fraîche, plutôt dense, "caillouteuse" à souhait, présentant toujours cette belle alliance de l'agrume et de la fumée réductrice. Un léger filet de gaz souligne l'ensemble, apportant un supplément de fraîcheur. La finale prolonge la tension de la bouche en concentrant encore plus la matière, la rendant plus saline et citronnée. Plus "caillouteuse", aussi, rendant ce vin irrésistible aux amateurs de "minéralité".

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.
