ABOUT THIS WINE
Three parcels all planted in 1903 plus some Las Trabasseres planted in 1913. All vineyards sites contain schists soils.
Starting with the 2018 vintage, Marjorie and Stéphane decided to only bottle a little amount of Las Trabasseres in select vintages. What is not bottled on its own is now blended into 1903. Las Trabasseres is a north-facing terroir, planted in 1913. It produces an intensily mineral and fresh wine that brings a lof of lift to 1903.
Mostly destemmed. Ambient yeast fermentation with pieds de cuve in closed concrete tanks for 7 days, then pressed and racked back to tank to finish fermentation. No temperature control. No punching down or pump overs. Aged in tank. No fining, light filtration.
