100% Roussanne, aka "Roussette" locally. From vines planted in 1936 on a south-facing limestone marl slope in the Brézème vineyard. They are farmed organically (certified) and harvested by hand. The bunches are direct-pressed and fermentated spontaneously and without sulfur. The wine is aged half in clay amphoras and half in old oak barrels. It is bottled without fining or filtration and with a small dose of sulfur. Fewer than 100 cases produced.
