VINIFICATION AND AGEING Mechanical harvesting followed by swift transfer to the 'chai'. The free run juice is separated and the grapes pressed. The must is clarified by centrifuge. The temperature is then reduced to 8°C and the must left to macerate on the lees for 4 to 5 days in order to extract more aromas. The fermentation is launched at 18°C with specially selected yeasts, also designed to enhance the aromas. The wine is left on its yeasts for a month and then racked and prepared for bottling 3 months after the harvest.

TASTING NOTES It is the high proportion of Muscadelle that makes Château Tertre de Launay so special. It is a difficult grape, often susceptible to grey rot. When perfectly ripe, the Muscadelle contributes complexity, finesse, bredth and its own special aromas to the wine. Château Tertre de Launay is a full, rich, intense, dry white wine with tremendous fruit and great appeal. It is a delight to drink when young with shellfish, oysters and other seafood.
