LE BLANC DE BLANCS
ORGANIC WHITE WINE 2019
AOP Côtes de Provence.
In the hilly area of the Maurettes the land consists of shaley soils derived from siluraian sages phyllites near Hyères, and Permian red sandstone.
60% Sémillon, 40% Rolle.
Average age of the vines : 25 years old.
A rainy 2018 fall allowed the vines to make their water reserves while 2019 was particularly dry. The beginning of the year was particularly windy, the winter was relatively soft with temperatures starting to cool down by the end of March. The bursting of the buds and the flowering were quite irregular. The first flowers appeared on the 21st of May on the Grenache. Such heterogeneity followed up until the harvest where the differences between the grape ripeness lead us to extend the harvest and pick up some plots in several times. The harvest started on the 22th of August and finished on the 20th of September.
