Appellation

I.G.P Cité de Carcassonne

Sélection

The vineyards are situated between 120 and 150m (390-490 ft) above sea level. They are planted on gentle easterly slopes.

Winemaking

The grapes are picked at night to preserve the grapes’ quality potential. After a first settling of the gross lees for 12 hours at room temperature, the must is cooled and kept on its fine lees at a low temperature for several days, in order to develop the potential and aromatic complexity before the start of fermentation, at 17-18°C for around 15 days.

Maturation

100% stainless steel vat with bâtonnage (stirring of the lees).

Soils

The terroir is predominantly infertile clay and limestone with high gravel content, and a crumbly sandstone known locally as “grès de Carcassonne”.

CAUSSE2

“Reconstitution du sol”

Tasting notes

Soft and smooth on the palate, this wine is underpinned by a lovely, long-lingering tension and discloses notes of white flowers and vineyard peaches. A pure, deep white wine of crystalline appearance
