Jacky Marteau La Chipie Blanc 2019


The vines are planted on some of the finest wine- growing land in Touraine, on the South bank of the Cher. The soil is a mixture of clay and flint.

Constantly striving for the best quality of grapes takes time: short-cane pruning, ploughing back the soil in parts of the vineyard, spring de-budding, de- leafing, grass cover throughout the vineyard, “green harvest,” limited yields.

Skin maceration for 2/3 of the cuvée for 8 hours, gentle pneumatic pressing, and cooling maceration (bringing the juice to a temperature of 5°C/41°F) for 7 days. Then classical wine-making methods are used under controlled temperature (17°C/63°F) for 3 or 4 weeks.
9 months on fine lies.
Complex aromas of white flowers, citrus and ripe fruits. Very long in the mouth.
