Running off juice from one of the vats during fermentation, a practice known as "la saignee". The juice is then fermented in barrels for 6 to 10 months with no added substances. The rose is then bottled without sulphites, leaving us with a perfectly natural wine.
The nose is fresh and floral, with red fruit, peonies and white flowers' aromas. Barely detectable, playtful tannins. A wonderful clairet.
Since 1610, Chateau Le Puy's vineyards have not been affected by any chemicals. The winery practices "organic" and " biodynamic" viticulture. They worked on "sulphur-free" wines since 1990 and avoided to add any extra yeasts or sugars. When the time comes to bottle the wines, we ensure that the process takes place in the middle of the lunar cycle and without any filtration. The bottles are corked and protected by a wax seal.
