Thierry Tissot Altesse Mataret 2014


Sold Out

Tasting Notes: Bright acid, intense minerality, slight bitterness, but with this voluptuous texture that just draws you in! This wine is 6 years old and not showing it at all, lots of life ahead if you want to age it. Melon, apricot, tangerines, and yellow flowers all woven together with a chalky minerality and lemon pith finish. Let it open up and don’t drink it too fast, it will continue to develop. Pair with pork dishes or something that has a smoky component, sea-bass or other steaky fish, or kabobs with pineapple and roasted onions.

Vinification: Manual harvest. Fermented in stainless steel at 15ºC, then at 20ºC to finish off all the sugars. Aged on fine lees for 6 months and then extensively in bottle. No residual sugar.
Soil: Clay calcareous with shale
Grapes: Altesse
