Serres Seques - 2020 - Jean Baptiste Semmartin
A wine of rare complexity, you’ll be travelling between quince, exotic fruits, jasmine, honey, sesame, candied citrus... The palate live up to the expectations after the "wow" effect of the nose, a great dry wine, crazy volume and length. Very beautiful interpretation of the appellation.

Blend of 50% Petit Manseng and 50% Gros Manseng, from vines grown biodynamically and planted on the plot of Serres Seques which means "dry ridge". A very steep plot, which has poor soils with lots of stones, facing due south. Manual harvest. Vinification: direct pressing, vinification and aging in Burgundy barrels, without new oak, long fermentation of more than a year, only two toppings of the barrels during aging. Bottled in February 2022, without fining or filtration, just a micro-dose of sulphur.
Jean Baptiste Semmartin
Jean-Baptiste Semmartin, in his forties, had a first life before entering the wine world. Originally from Tarbes, this professional fencer lived 10 years in Paris, before turning to viticulture. After a viti-oeno diploma, he had a brainwave when he met Emmanuel Giboulot , who made him taste his Lulunne 2008: big slap, he understood that he wanted to make wine and how he wanted to do it....All wines
