Lâchez les Fauves – Coup de Gueule Blanc
47,40 € TTC the box of 6 bottles
The Coup de Gueule sits very well alongside seafood such as razor or wedge clams, but also with more elaborate dishes such as turkey stuffed with apples or samphire. It can also be served with cheeses such as Pélardon or Rocamadour.
Varietal range: Blend of Sauvignon and Grenache Blanc.
Soil types: Clay-limestone soils.
Vineyard management: The vines are trained using the Guyot system. The canopy is large and guarantees the grapes ripen well and develop quality aromatics.
Winemaking: The grapes are harvested by night to preserve the freshness of the fruit and then go straight-to-press in a pneumatic press. A good proportion of the lees is kept, adding balance and aromatic expression. The juice is fermented at low temperatures (16-18°C) over a short period (7 days). After alcoholic fermentation, the wines are kept in stainless steel tanks on fine lees for 4 to 6 months.
Tasting notes: Aromas of lemon and pink grapefruit. The palate is lively but well-balanced and gratifying. This is a fresh, punchy white wine.
