Domaine Chauveaux, Silex
The grapes are pressed using a pneumatic press . Settling is done at 16°C, followed by alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature (18-19°C maximum to conserve the aromas of the wine) in stainless steel tanks. Aged on lees for 6 to 8 months.
Siliceous clay . This white or brown clay envelops little pieces of flint. It produces crisp Pouilly Fumé with “gun-flint” mineral aromas. These wines have good bottle ageing potential.
