Tasting Notes
The Lesca Vineyard is high lying and has gravelly soils rich in limestone and clay which hold water well and gives good lemony acidity to the resulting wine. Picked early in the morning to capture the aromatic fruit with nutty notes and fresh acidity. De-stemmed, crushed and settled overnight the juice is then transfered to mostly 2nd fill French oak barrels for fermentation and subsequent aging for 10 months. The delicate red apple and peach nose with hints of brioche and nuts leads to a really elegant long palate with nicely balance oak and fresh acidity. You, sadly now, will find nothing of this class in Burgundy at this price.
