Artésis White Organic

Terroirs dominated by pebbles for a contribution of power, clay-limestone and sands for finesse. This wine combines beautiful freshness and remarkable elongation.

Les cartes en main

Nature

The pebble terroirs impart strength whilst the clay-limestone and sand soils impart finesse. The Mistral winds offer significant phytosanitary advantages. The climate and soils are well suited to the production of rich and fruity wines.

The hand of man

The climate requires good balance between the varietals in order to retain freshness. The vines are primarily gobelet trained and yields are at 44 hL/ha. Sustainable viticulture, manual harvests and de-stemming.

Character and potential

Organoleptic profile: exotic and citrus fruits intertwine with apricot, white peach and a hint of spice and vanilla. Direct and seductive wines with a rich fruitiness

Notre ambition

Vision

Edouard Guérin: ‘The harvested crops are pressed immediately and at low temperatures followed by slow fermentations to add further complexity. The malolactic fermentation is not triggered in order to retain freshness.’
