'La Bonnode' is an east-facing parcel in Saint-Veran, set at the foot of the Roche de Vergisson (an imposing rocky, limestone peak overlooking Pouilly Fuisse). Cuvée Ovoïde is, as the name suggests, a bottling fermented in concrete 'Ovoïde' egg. A delightfully fleshy white with a very generous palate of apple, pear drops, citrus, and fresh fennel.
Made in an egg. Amazing nose of spice, citrus, minerals and smoke. The palate is taut and intense with astonishing energy, a saline streak, and mouthwatering acidity, which is so well integrated. There’s a salty finish. Unusual but brilliant.
