Cherries, herbs, candied raspberries, minerals, herbs and creamy yellow flowers on the nose. The palate is bright and dry, framed by rocks + minerals. Prior to achieving AOC status for the Côtes d’Auvergne, this area was considered an extension of the Loire Valley. However, this is far more unique terroir, with heavily volcanic soils imparting distinct character and minerality in the wines. Stainless Steel fermentation with indigenous yeasts. 3–6 months on fine lees. Made by Saint-Verny cooperative. Think volcanic Pinot Noir!
