LE BLANC DE BLANCS
ORGANIC WHITE WINE 2020
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.
78% Rolle, 22% Sémillon.
Average age of the vines : 25 years old.
A rainy fall allowed the water reserves from the soil to be replenished. The winter was soft and dry, leading to an advance of the vegetative cycle with early budbreak starting on March 11th. The vines located in Pierrefeu suffered from a historic frost on March 26th. We had to wait until May to record milder temperatures. Flowering began on May 13th on the Grenaches in Hyères and it went normally, with no noticeable coulure. The hot and dry weather of July, combined with the good water reserves, contributed to the good development of the vines during summer. The harvest started on August 17th and finished on September 8th.
