This Fumé Blanc was made by renowned Gilles Lapalus using low intervention techniques. It was whole-bunch pressed and wild-fermented, then left on skins for around 10 days to add texture, integrate aromatics and create a beautiful amber colour. It’s unfiltered, with minimal sulphur, and not cold stable: leaving everything natural to flourish. Remarkable citrus and tropical notes integrate with texture and a driving acidity. A sort of pithy, grassy mouth feel and flavour has developed, and it’s a refreshing, dry but fruity white wine that will go beautifully with seafood and summer.
