The fine acidity of this terroir gives it depth and freshness. Les Pucelles offers great drinkability now but will certainly find its peak after a few years of cellaring. This is the same terroir as Les Moulins de Beau Puys. For those who are passionate about terroir, a comparative tasting of the 2 cuvées is very interesting.

Terroir : old and early vines on a north facing slope of chalky alteration (between 5 and 40cm) on a limestone principal rock : the tuffeau. This singular terroir of the Véron is called here millarges.
Examples of pre-harvest work : Guyot Poussard pruning, light hoeing around the vines, de-budding and light thinning of the vines.
Harvest : Manual harvesting at night to start the fermentation at low temperature. Manual sorting of the grapes in the cellar, carbonic maceration : grapes in juice.
Winemaking process : Traditional with native yeast without sulfur, light soaking, no wine collage.
Bottling : To obtain the desired result, light filtration and minimum addition of sulfur right at the time of bottling. Bottling handled by a subcontracted specialist to ensure that only a minimum of oxygen enters during the process.
Vinification : semi-carbonic maceration (Beaujolais type) with indigenous yeasts without sulphur, unfiltered wine. We selected grapes (from old massal selections) where the stems were very lignified, allowing a semi-carbonic maceration without fearing the extraction of the tannins from the stems.
