Cedrick Bardin Pouilly-Fumé “Les Bernadats” 2020
Cedrick Bardin Pouilly-Fumé “Les Bernadats” is an intense golden wine. A sunny nose of ripe pineapple, dried apricot, candied lemon, acacia honey and a touch of fennel. A supple attack on the full-bodied palate that envelopes the senses with exotic notes of passion fruit, pineapple, dried apricot, quince jam, lemon citrus and honey. The finish is long with good persistence and a sensation of salinity.
100% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes come from the oldest parcel of the domaine with vines an average age of 45-years-old. The vineyard has a Kimmeridgian marl soil composition and southern exposure. An exceptional terroir that gives the wine body, fullness and powerful aromas.
Cold settling of the must on lees for 4–5 days before fermentation. Fermentation in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats for 10–15 days at a temperature of 15°C. Battonage is done 1 month after the end of fermentation.
We love ourselves a good Sauvignon Blanc but adore unusual whites made with indigenous grapes too! Check out Baia’s Wine Krakhuna White 2020.
