Idoine 2019 is 100% Merlot from vines that are 30 – 40 years old. (In the previous vintage it also had some Grenache.)
Vinified initially in two tanks, the whole bunches had five days maceration.
One tank had a little pigeage and the other none to keep the floral aromas from the semi-carbonic maceration. The two tanks were mixed after pressing and aged in stainless steel tank.
They found the name ‘Idoine’ in a book Laurent’s uncle had written. It means ‘the good stuff’. We agree!
This wine has no additions, including no added sulphites, and no filtration.
