Product Description:

Jean-Baptiste: “Comes from the Ardèche, near Pont d’Arc. The Rhône is at 100 meters altitude, then there is a plateau at 200 meters, and then there are more hills. There are few vineyards on those hills, but I went for the highest I could find, more than 300 meters. And I wanted granite. Roussanne is complicated. Its plateau of maturity is very short. In 48 hours it can go from 12 to 14 degrees. At 14, you get heaviness. So the idea is to pick just before the grapes fully roussissent (redden), to have maturity yet keep freshness. It’s a difficult compromise to achieve. I had great acidities before malo [for the Rhône], pHs of 3.3/3.4. Roussanne quickly gets honeyed. Here we’re just at the limit, at the beginning of honey. And there was a lot of citrus at the beginning of élevage. But citrus in our region? Dream on.”
