The recipe for creating great wines is simple but demands excessive amounts of labor both in the vineyard and the winery. The dazzling, airy, crystal mineral character of Violaine sets the bar very high and exalts the value of small-scale producers of this appellation who like to do things differently. This is like going in a garden of fruits of grapefruit and red apple combined with a crystal minerality that reminds of the saltiness and umami flavor of oysters. Extremely subtle but layered palate, with exciting texture and everlastingly sharp energy. A champagne that finely combines tension and energy with elegance and finesse. Length, persistence and harmony characterize the utterly natural Violaine.
