Aromas of crisp pears, lemon zest, wildflowers. Stone fruit and citrus, with a finish that echoes the terroir’s smoke and seasalt notes. Complex and very age-worthy. PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Rich seafood; white meats; cream sauces. Pure flint (silex) soils, rich in fossilized material; such soils contribute a minerality and smokiness to the wine. A full south-facing vineyard. ‘Les Romains’ was one of the domaine’s first ‘single-vineyard’ bottlings (the first vintage was 1997). AGE OF VINES: 40+ years WINEMAKING: Hand-harvested. Fermented on indigenous yeasts and aged in older French barrique. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
