Pellehaut Blanc Reserve
New Wine - Chateau Pellehaut is a family estate in South-West France - one of the oldest vineyards in the Gers region of Gascony with a 300+ year old history. Two brothers, Martin and Mathieu Béraut, tend this family estate, one of the oldest vineyards in the Gers (300 years old). They produce a range of Armagnacs as well as breeding cattle (Blondes d’Aquitaine), all this in harmony with a rich surrounding biodiversity. More recently, they have begun to produce a complete range of fresh, aromatic and easy-to-drink wines which are a pleasure to drink at any time of year. An estate run by two passionate winegrowers which is getting itself talked about more and more. Cuvée Réserve is made only in certain years when the conditions are right.
Their Reserve White is a co-ferment blend of Chardonnay and Petit Manseng from old vines. The whole art of making this tiny cuvée resides in the difficulty of fermenting two different varieties together in oak barrels. Since the Petit Manseng is harvested one month and a half after the Chardonnay, the juice of the latter is carefully conserved, complete with the fine and coarse lees, at 2°C in temperature-controlled vats during this long period. This blend of juices (which is determined by tasting) ferments naturally in 225-litre barrels (30% new) of French oak. This wine was aged in the barrel on the fine lees for nine months and was not filtered before bottling to conserve all the fruity and oaky aromas.
