Domaine des Miquettes

"Madloba" Blanc - 2016 - Paul Estève

An orange wine with powerful notes of bergamot, lemon, and absinthe... Palate: surprising texture, there is none of the tannic, even astringent character that you often see with this kind of vinification. Lovely bitter notes. A captivating cuvée!

Natural wine, Georgian style. A blended cuvée of 50% Marsanne and 50% Viognier, from a plot of 35- and 12-year-old vines grown on granite and black mica soils, at 350 metres altitude. The estate is certified organic by ECOCERT. The vines are farmed naturally using plant-based treatments, and the soil is ploughed by horse. The grapes are harvested by hand, and carefully sorted. 

Vinification: fermentation and maturing for 1 year in 400-litre amphorae buried in the vines just like in Georgia. No additives, zero sulphites, no filtering, and no fining.
