Our parcels are cultivated to yield completely healthy grapes. The balance between clusters and foliage helps to produce fruit whose natural acidity can still be felt, with sugar content of around 12.5% by volume. We begin to harvest when a tasting of the berries confirms a complete absence of any lingering plant flavors. Valmy’s harvests kick off with the picking of our V de Valmy plots in the last days of August. Our V de Valmy Blanc parcels are harvested in the morning.
To make white wine, the berries are separated from the stems and drop-loaded into the press. The juice is gradually extracted and tasted at regular intervals. After clarification, fermentation begins under very strict temperature controls. This phase lasts some two to three weeks.
The end of the fermentation process takes place at low temperatures. Maturation occurs exclusively in vats over the course of a few months, with bottling in February / March of the next year, so that the new vintage will be available in early spring.
V de Valmy Blanc has a light golden color with glints of silver. Its nose combines hints of citrus and white flowers with aromas of Muscat grapes. Freshness dominates the equilibrium on the palate, giving the wine its thirst-quenching properties. A wine that is best enjoyed chilled.
