In the mouth it is dry, full, crisp, balanced and pleasant. It closes with a nice return on the fruit, before a tart finish.
Tasting Notes: An everyday white wine that's floral and fruity on the nose. Very clean, especially considering the very low intervention winemaking. On the palate it's surprisingly complex and full-bodied, with a good acidity and minerality. Long, slightly fruity finish.
Tasting Notes: Haut les Coeurs shows a light, translucent, ruby red color with purple reflexes. In the nose, there are notes of ripe dark and amarena cherries, as well as some Mediterranean brush. The attack on the palate is fresh, with a juicy mid-palate; then some fine tannins emerge. A well-incorporated acidity carries through to the end, where it finishes on light tobacco notes.

A very harmonious and charming chalky gravel, even natural wine beginners need not be afraid.

Harmony. Also on the palate: caressing, very delicate touches, flowing movements, everything so fine, the ripe acidity, the bright light yellow, greenish fruit brushes the palate, the fresh, slightly tart, chalky tones like a cool breeze, everything so delicate, so harmonious, there is no imbalance, no urging, no demanding, this is just being, delicately touched, light creamy, and in thought, yet so light. Wonderfully coherent, light Bourgogne Aligoté, of delicate, almost creamy flow.
Tasting Notes: With the cuvée Futur, Raphaël Baissas de Chastenet signs for his second vintage an exceptional bottle. A frank and free wine, rather discreet at the opening but which will evolve magnificently well over the next 4 years. The most pressed will decant for half an hour to enjoy it on the youth!

Tasting Notes: Balsamic tensions, citrus fruit skins, fresh mineral sensations and raisins animate the nose. Never decomposed on the palate, sapid, with round and long tannins. A wine with great personality.
Tasting Notes: Trespotz is a rather easy-drinking expression of Malbec. The Domaine la Calmette has added a splash of Merlot for roundness, making this a dark-fruit-forward red wine, that has some classic Malbec spice and a touch of tannin, but is also plenty quaffable.
Tasting Notes: Direct press Nerello Mascalese from the slopes. This fresh rosé comes in a liter bottle, so it's the perfect bring to a party wine. Especially if said party is outside, cherries, spice, herbs and orange zest on the nose, juicy and mineral on the palate. You won't know where it went.

On the nose this wine shows black- and redcurrant, apples and grapefruit, with some exotic fruit in the background. The palate is juicy and mineral, with a refreshing acidity.
Tasting Notes: Domaine Ad Vinum challenges the boundaries of traditional winemaking. Here, he blends a 5-day maceration of Grenache Noir with direct press Ugni Blanc, only to then mix that with Gewürztraminer lees for extra aromatic power. The result is a light red wine, that's almost a rosé. Sounds complicated but tastes heavenly glouglou. Smells of candy and undergrowth, tastes of summer.
