Caroline & Thomas are passionate about wine and nature. Having been in the wine trade for some years, Caroline as a trained winemaker and Thomas in sales, they decided to move to their favorite French region (The Rhone Valley) and bought their dream vineyard in 2012. Dentelle white is a blend of 13 local grape varietals. Energetic and fresh white rhône. not oily or fat if ya know what I mean.
Citrus, honeysuckle and summer stone fruit. Aromatic notes of apricot with tropical hints. Crisp acidity with stone fruit flavours filling the mid palate. A soft, well balanced finish.
region: rhône valley, france
varietals: vermentino, Marsanne, Clairette, Roussanne, Viognier, Bourboulenc, Grenache Blanc, Gros Manseng, Chenin Blanc, Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc
farming & cellar: biodynamic, hand-harvested early in the season to retain the natural acidity of the fruit, the 13 grapes varietals are picked at sunrise to retain freshness and brought to the cellar in small containers for direct pressing. Partly barrel fermented with wild yeasts, maturation takes places in tank and barrel (with lees stirring) followed by light filtration prior to bottling at the Domaine in January following harvest. Minimal sulphite addition.
pairing: poulet d'avignon w/ brandy, mushroom and crème fraîche or Moroccan Pastilla
