Description: Produced from young vines from a parcel of a little more than two hectares, the cuvée SP68's name comes from the road which runs alongside the vines. Fermentation and maceration take place in steel vats, as does the 6-month élevage. There is neither clarification nor filtration. On the nose, this wine has lovely aromas of citrus fruits (orange, grapefruit), notes of almond and orange blossom. On the palate it is perfectly balanced, with a nice tension and aromatic complexity, particularly on the finish, with aromas of flint and white tobacco. This wine can be drunk from now, for the next 6 years.
