Orthogneiss - 2019 - Fred Niger

Domaine de l'Ecu

A subtle, elegant nose, redolent of citrus peel, with notes of white flowers, spice and cumin, followed by dried fruit, toasted almonds, and mineral and iodised notes. The palate is complex and open, with great volume: ripe citrus, saline notes, and hints of smoke. A pink grapefruit finish.

Manual harvest, yields around 35 hl/ha. The vinification approach is natural and respectful, work by gravity, indigenous yeasts, direct pressing of the whole clusters, maturation on lees in vats.

Fred Niger

Fred bought Domaine de l'Écu in 2010, with its perfect soils cultivated organically since 1972, then certified biodynamic by DEMETER in 1998.
