(Price per bottle: sent in boxes of 6 bottles)
This vintage is elaborated with the grapes from 4 of our vineyard’s plots of old vines aged from 45 to 65 years, of which half are rooted into sandy gravels and the other half into clay gravels.
This delicate and well-balanced wine, which is aged on fine lees, has a supple and soft attack, fine, it slowly evolves into ripe fruit.
This vintage should be tasted slowly to extend the pleasure. Dare to try it on a foie gras or a carpaccio of scallops!
To enjoy between 2 to 6 years. Although our wines do keep longer!
Wine tasting notes
A nose that opens up on very ripe white fruit, on spices with slight vanilla hints and on candied and jammy citrus fruit. An ample mouth beginning with a light pastry sweetness, followed by the return of the acidity, which structures the whole set. An unctuous and powerful wine.
« The wine has a pale lemon color with green reflections. The nose offers freshness, juiciness and a very slight sweetness. It expresses notes of crushed green apple, green pear, lemon, lemon zest, fresh quince, white peach, as well as delicate herbaceous touches (verbena, lemon thyme), apple blossom and acacia. On the palate, the wine offers roundness, juiciness and complexity. It expresses notes of ripe stone fruit (yellow peach, apricot), crushed green apple, grapefruit, lemon, lemon zest yellow, as well as herbaceous (verbena, lemon thyme, peppermint in the base) and floral (acacia, apple blossom) notes. The finish is lively, tangy, with energy and good persistence. It offers fresh and slightly bitter citrus notes (grapefruit, lime), as well as mineral, slightly smoky and herbaceous touch (oregano). A perfumed wine, with a good structure and a certain complexity. Score : 15+/20 (89-90/100) » (Vert de Vin n°23, juillet 2023)
« A ripe stile with ripe apples and some honeyed notes, very dry and goodfreshness. » (Per & Britt Karlsson, A Personal Selection Out Of 122 Sauvignon Blancs, Forbes, 25/05/2023)
« Pêche blanche, bouche vive, fraîche, assez gourmande, équilibrée, de la matière, bonne longueur. » 15/20 (Le Point, janvier 2021)
« Minérale avec des accents d’agrumes confits, cette cuvée fait la courte échelle au foie gras. » (Le Guide des Vins Bettane & Desseauve 2019)
« Ample et riche le Quincy Vieilles Vignes est doté de beaucoup de fraîcheur, d’une belle tension appuyée lui conférant longueur et dynamisme. » (1jour1vin)
Wine and food pairing
Serve between 10 and 12°C as an appetizer with smoked fish (trout, salmon…) or with small pastry puffs with époisse cheese (the famous ‘gougères’). It goes perfectly with white meat (stuffed capon or turkey cutlets on a creamy mushroom sauce). But the secret is to taste it with pan-fried scallops and a purée of parsnip.
