The perfect companion to discover Cabernet Franc, La Dilettante is a wine vinified by carbonic maceration from old vines on gravel soils. The perfect pairing for an improvised drink around a snack or tapas. Feminine, with discreet tannins, goes well with vegetarian meals, soft cheeses, and fish. As written in Bettane et Desseauve : « A wine for every palate. Fresh, fruity and perfectly tasty.”
SoilGravel, 50 year old vines
VinificationIn the morning we carefully place the bunches in a Grenier tank of 45 HL, to avoid crushing them before we saturate the tank in carbonic gas. The absence of oxygen inhibits the beginning of fermentation and favors the work of the enzymes that break down the grape berries. After three weeks, the degraded berries are removed from the tank in order to be gently pressed in a pneumatic press.
ElevageThe juice is kept in neutral (two wines) Burgundian barrels (228 L). Slowly the alcoholic fermentation begins, followed by malolactic fermentation. We regularly rack the wine so that the carbonic gas dissipates, and to aerate, while respecting the biodynamic calendar and taking into account external temperatures.
