Restaké - 2022 - Laurence Manya Krief
So much pleasure vintage after vintage for this juice that screams both summer and freshness. Notes of apricot, citrus fruits, honey, a hint of iodine... The palate is round, generous, perfectly balanced by the mineral tension, and the tangy finish. Bravo Yoyo!

A blend of 75% Grenache Gris and Blanc, up to 85 years old (and from the highest altitude vines in Banyuls), and 25% Carignan Blanc and Gris, from young vines. An extreme parcel – a north-facing, stony wasteland. This exploit of nature is only possible thanks to underground springs. Manual harvest on the 12th of August. Vinification: direct pressing, fermentation in stainless steel vats, maturation for 6 months in barrels that have seen 7 or 8 wines. Bottled at the estate without fining nor filtration, just a micro-dose sulphur.
Laurence Manya-Krief is sincere, upright, and determined... Formerly a sales director in ready-to-wear fashion, at 35 years old she dropped her career for a life of vines. Today, our taste buds are thrilled that she did! She may be petite, but she cultivates some of the most difficult plots in France. Her steep slopes are completely incompatible with mechanised farming, so she depends instead...All wines
