Counoise Domaine de Monpertuis 2006
All vineyards are hand harvested. The white varietals are picked early to preserve acidity and aromatic intensity and are fermented separately according to varietal under controlled temperatures. After several years of experimenting with barrel aging, Jeune has determined that the whites perform better without exposure to oak. The whites are normally bottled in the Spring following harvest. The red varietals are not destemmed before fermentation.
