Domaine Jacky Marteau Lulu Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Rodolphe Marteau's main focus is getting the best quality of grapes through various techniques such as spring de-budding, de-leafing, grassing through the vineyard, and green harvest for lowering yields. The winemaking then becomes simple. 1/3 of the Sauvignon Blanc production is macerated with skin to naturally bring down the acidity while adding body and fruit depending on the needs of the year. Then there is a gentle pressing with a pneumatic press, cooling maceration (bring the wine to cold temperature: 5°C) during 7 days, then kept under controlled temperature (17°C) for 3 or 4 weeks. The wine is aged on fine lees in stainless steel tanks and then bottled in December.
