Certified biodynamic since 2015. The vineyard is situated on the same Asterie-limestone mother rock as those of Le Puy, but at a slightly lower altitude—80 meters above sea level compared to Le Puy’s 110 meters. The topsoil is slightly sandier and less clayey here, and it is a bit deeper than at Le Puy—between 1.0 and 1.3 meters. In the cellar, Duc des Nauves is both fermented (spontaneously, of course) and aged in cement, and bottled without filtration after one year. Certified organic.
Heady dark fruit and spice aromas are followed by plush fruit and round tannins. The youth of the wine brings vigour and freshness. A slight chill woudn't go amiss for the Duc de Nauves. Satisfying partner to all manner of roasts. Easter is here after all!
