Saint-Joseph "Méribets" White 2017

Saint-Joseph

This wine is excellent to accompany as an aperitif and with fish.

Harvested by hand. Pressing is done with the whole grape bunches just after the harvest. Then 60% of the must is put in oak casks, and the rest remains in stainless steel tanks.

Alcoholic fermentation happens around 15-17 °C with stirring on the delicate lees. Then aged on the lees in new barrels for one year. This wine is then assembled with the wine aged in the tanks. Bottling is done about 9 months after harvest.
