Domaine des Lauriers

The Domaine des Lauriers was established in 1969 with the purchase of their first vineyard plots. They had to be selective in their purchase of land to ensure they only acquired the best soils, so building the 45 hectares of vineyards currently making up the "Domaine des Lauriers" was a gradual process.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant yellow robe with green tints. Flower nose with notes of hawthorn, acacia, but also citrus fruit. Round and mineral wine in the mouth with a grapefruit finish.

Food Matches

A fabulous match for fish and oysters.

Vinification

Vinification is achieved under inert gas in order to keep freshness and aromas, then a pneumatic pressing occurs and cold settling at 8° C during 24 hours; 3 week fermentation under controlled temperature. The wine is then fined and filtered before bottling.
