2 months skin-contact, followed by 5 months in amphora. No sulfites at all, unfined, unfiltered.
Opens up first on amphora high notes and a bit of VA, but unfolds into mellow chenin tones framed by a high-tension skin-contact framework, in a decidedly natural-wine style.
Recommend decanting, or opening 3-4 hour in advance. Enjoy cool.
Vacheron's rare experimental franc de pied cuvee -- planted on original rootstock in 2008. The wine is outside the village's appelation laws, thus Vin de France, and is officially non-vintage, though the fruit came from the 2015 harvest.
