Les Cailloux du Paradis

Evidence - 2009 - Etienne Courtois

A complex aromatic palette, with hints of walnuts and spices, this is an oxidative vin de voile wine made in the spirit of a vin jaune from the Jura. Not sweet, but rich and dry, this is an extremely high-class wine! An unbelievable cuvée, it’s a wine that’s unique in the world... signed Courtois.

100% Menu Pineau from vines farmed organically and planted on a flinty clay soil. The grapes are late harvested, with ultra low yields of 7 to 12 hl/ha! Natural vinification and an unconventional approach to maturation – 120 months in barrels without ouillage, i.e. the custom of topping up the barrels regularly to compensate for the phenomenon of evaporation known as “the angels share”. When a barrel is not topped up for a long time a veil of flor develops on the surface of the wine; the flor is nourished by the wine, which in turn develops notes of walnuts and an aromatic palette of great complexity.

The estate is made up of vines, fruit trees, hedges and a farmyard... It’s Etienne, the first...
