Grapes: Trousseau and Mondeause
Technical information: Trousseau never completely finishes verasion. Clusters contain some pink fruit and errant green grapes. Our Vin Gris program started in 2017 when the winery crew isolated the pinker clusters into a bin, crushed it by foot trodding, and let it soak a few days for a rose color. Now that our Mondeuse vines are producing dark, high-acid grapes, Vin Gris has become a more significant wine within the Combe quiver. We press the dark Mondeuse immediately while the main portion of Trousseau soaked on the crushed skins for a day. The riper pick of Trousseau soaked on the skins for 5 days for color, depth, and texture. For the first time, half of the wine aged in tank to maintain freshness and the other half developed a softer texture in used oak.
