This wine is created with fruit from two vineyards: one located on a chalky soil and the other one on a light clay soil. There is no use of insecticides, pesticides or herbicides at Domaine de Montine. The use of organic fertilizer is strictly reserved to the plot of land concerned and is done with respect to ground/plant harmony. Manual work on growing vines. High trellising, green harvest and leaf thinning according to the vintage. Night harvest.
Soft Press done at cold temperatures, followed by natural cold settling, a thermo-controlled fermentation (<18°C), and no malolactic fermentation.
A nose of white and yellow fleshed fruit. The mouth is soft and round with a beautiful fresh approach and flavors of citrus.
Perfect with asparagus and goat cheese salad, or grilled fish.
