Rich apricot and peach flavours, as well as significant sweetness from 120grams+ residual sugar. Still you have great acidity, length and richness. A joy and terrific value.
The Cuvée Dentelle is 100% Petit Manseng. The grapes are picked very ripe, end of October / start of November, as if picking for a sweet wine. This gives the wine huge concentration along with low yields. The wines are vinified entirely in 1-2 year old barrels sourced from some of the best Châteaux in Bordeaux. Jean-Joseph uses natural yeasts which can be challenging to vinify given the level of ripeness of the grapes. Throughout the process SO2 levels are kept at a minimum in line with biodynamic regulations.
