Grapes Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains

100% Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains grown on limestone, chalk and clay soil. The grapes are manually harvested late in the season, when they are overripe and when the noble rot has concentrated the sugars. They are carefully selected. 24 to 48 hours of maceration on the skins, then pressed and fermented at a temperature between 70 and 73.5F. The Muscat is then fortified with grape spirit and aged in stainless steel tanks, and a little longer in bottle before release. The Impassitu has a unique finesse and reveals complex honeyed notes of candied fruit, citrus and a pronounced botrytis character. 100gr RS/l. Classic balance and remarkably long finish. Can be enjoyed now and for up to 10 years. Pair with desserts or serve as an aperitif.
