In reference to the footpath furrowing the south facing slope of the Mount Sainte-Victoire, the confidential cuvee of Le Pas du Moine Blanc marks the quintessence of Vermentino and reveals expressive aromas of mango, lychee and rose petals.
Morning harvest, light press maceration, and a delicacy pressing. Stabulation during 7 days with low temperature below 5°C. Tight settling and fermentation in concrete tanks at 14°C. Racking. Ageing on lees during 12 weeks.
Appearance : Bright clear hue with silver tinges.
Nose : Intense and expressive nose offering aromas of exotic fruits such as Hawaiian pineapple underpinned by subtle touches of fleshy white fruits and citrus fruits such as Comice pear and tangerine.
Palate : The palate reveals exceptional balance and a smooth structure enhanced by the same exotic fruits as those found on the nose complemented by aromas of white flowers such as acacia blossom. The finish is long and fresh with the characteristic structure and distinctiveness of the Sainte-Victoire terroir.
Enjoy served with a tuna tataki in a roasted sesame crust, a marinated beef carpaccio or a vegetarian curry with cumin and ginger shavings.
