"Biodynamic. 68 year-old Xarel.lo, sand, clay, and limestone soils @ 260 m. The Nun vineyar, only 0.78 ha, has been farmed organically and biodynamically since 2005. This is Xarel.lo that could easily be mistaken for Meursault and shows exactly how compelling the grape can be in the right hands. The grapes are picked, sorted, and then barrel fermented in a combination of new and used 300 liter French oak barrels using native yeast. Ageing, done with zero battonage, is carried out in the same barrels for 8 months. 8 barrels produced (240 cs)"
