Pergaud St. Julien-en-St. Alban Marsanne
100% Marsanne. From 80-year-old vines in St. Julien. Eric changed it up for the Marsanne this vintage: instead of 8 months on the skins in clay tinaja or amphora like in 2015, the 2016 saw “only” 4 months of skin contact, followed by 2 years on the lees in old barrel. Bottled without sulfur in November 2018.
Note: the Pergaud domaine moniker appears on four Texier wines and indicates that the wine is made from older vines in either the Brézème or St. Julien-en-St. Alban vineyard area.
