AGED UNDER SNOW
GRAVES of BORDEAUX - Vintage : 2018 (12% vol.) Grape variety : Sauvignon / Semillon
Winemaker Franck LABEYRIE - Château LUGEY
When we talk about snow wines, you will have understood it, we are talking about a wine aged in the mountains!
Nearly 2000 bottles at an altitude of 2500 meters with the help of a helicopter. This takes place in the winter sports resort of Cauterets in the Hautes-Pyrénées.
He then covered his crates with more than 6 metres of snow using a snow groomer in order to obtain the desired conditions: - Optimised storage away from light
- Humidity and constant temperature
Tasting this Blanc des Neiges reveals a higher minerality than the original wine aged in the cellar.
Food and wine pairing:
On a white pudding with porcini mushrooms,
this Vin des Neiges will go wonderfully well!
