Terroir Daronton - Bio, AOC Vacqueyras, Blanc, 2019

Story

The wine
We have retained the ancestral techniques and know-how of the feudal period, to produce this characteristically opulent, finely-crafted cuvée, made from 100% organically-cultivated grapes. This rich, approachable wine receives the greatest of care from our winegrowers in both vineyard and winery and is aged with the utmost respect for tradition.
Terroir
Cru Vacqueyras is a blend of wines from various parts of the appellation with different terroirs : soils with river stones on the surface, zaffer, and deep clay.
Vinification
Our vineyard management and winemaking methods, handed down through several generations, make the very most of the Vacqueyras terroir. The grapes are brought to the winery in the cool of the early-morning and undergo skin contact at 10°C to extract all the fresh fruit flavours and roundness. The wine is then aged on its lees to retain maximum freshness.
Maturing
The wine is then patiently reared on fine lees to keep all its freshness.
