Edmée Le Roy
A MUCH SOUGHT-AFTER RARITY
Our white wine is one of the estate’s first historical wines.
Edmée le Roy is a rare and limited wine: only 2 hectares of the vineyard are devoted to its production. It is a delicate blend of Roussanne and Clairette with a touch of Grenache Blanc.
Harvested entirely by hand in crates with sorting on the plot, the grapes are picked in the morning in order to preserve the freshness of the aromas.
After full destemming, the grapes are delicately pressed. Settling followed by fermentation in vats and ageing of 6 months complete the refinement of this wine.

After a mild winter and a cool spring, marked by an episode of frost in April, followed a summer punctuated by a few very hot episodes. Thanks to the rain in early August, the grape ripening process did not have to suffer from excessive water stress.
It is a late vintage with low yield. The first cuvées suggest lower average degrees than in previous years, high color intensities and good acidity that will ensure great aging potential.
