A singular blend of Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc from the iron-rich volcanic soils of the Auvergne. An interesting process is at play here whereby the Sauvignon Blanc is pressed directly and then the Pinot Gris is added to this juice as whole berries to gently macerate for close to an entire year. The results are stunning: lifted aromatics of peaches and spice with a crackle of volcanic minerality, then such a pure palate, gripping tannic elements, dried fruits, membrillo-esque quince and some creamy malolactic notes, softened further from time in barrel. A genuinely intriguing wine with so much going on!
