Domaine de l'Ecu

Taurus - 2015 - Fred Niger

A robe with the hue of soft wheat. An elegant nose, with pronounced mineral notes, and aromas of lemon and grapefruit. Next come more delicate notes of white flowers, dried fruits, almond and toasted aromas. On the palate this is full-bodied, opulent wine, balanced by its fine acidity and a vibrancy which sustains its equilibrium. A wine endowed with great length and a peppery finish.

100% Melon de Bourgogne, from a rocky parcel with a granite and orthogneiss subsoil, certified organic since 1975 and biodynamic by Demeter since 1998. The grapes are 100% collected by hand, the reception of the harvest is done by gravity, thus without the use of pumps, pneumatic pressing, no clarification and 100% indigenous yeasts. Maturation takes place in two stages: 12 months on lees in vats then 12 months in Burgundy barrels which have seen four wines. No fining, no filtration, just enough sulphites to ensure the wine’s stability.
