Les Vignerons Parisiens Lutece 2017

14% abv

A beautiful expression of citrus fruits (lemon) and exotic fruits, and a mineral note which reinforces the freshness of the nose, nice roundness in the attack, very quickly underlined by a remarkable freshness. The fruit is present in the mid-palate underlined by floral notes. The finish is persistent, on mineral notes, and the slight lemony acidity at the end of the mouth gives this wine a very good drinkability.

This is the only multi-varietal wine made in the cellar. It’s a three-way blend of Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. The grapes come from the village of Sabran in the Gard, with the grapes harvested a week earlier than the proprietors own picking. The wine is raised in tank and bottled at the end of April following the harvest. At around 12,000 bottles, it is the principle white cuvee. For interest, Lutèce was the original name of Paris during the Middle Ages.

Pressing in whole bunches then settling in stainless steel vats. Fermentation in stainless steel vats then aging on fine lees without malolactic fermentation or batônage to preserve the purity of the fruit and freshness at the end of the mouth. Bottled at the end of March

Les Vignerons Parisens is the first and only urban winery in Paris. Located in the 3rd Arrondissement, the enterprise was founded by Matthieu Bosser with two partners: oenologist Emmanuel Gagnepain and biodynamic viticulture consultant Frédéric Duseigneur.

Their biodynamic and certified organic grapes are sourced from four different growers (to which Emmanuel and Frédéric already consult), located in the communes of Visan and Sabran in the southern Rhône. Although the project only started in 2015, the partners have built up and intimate knowledge of all the vineyards they work with over the past 15 years.

Whilst the traceability of the grapes is known to the exact parcel, the wines are not allowed to carry any mention of appellation, for two reasons. Firstly, since they are vinified outside the region (some 500km north of the vineyards, to be exact) and, secondly, because all but one of the cuvees produced are single varietal wines for which no regional appellation exists. The wines are therefore all commercialised as Vin de France.
