Domaine Delalex "Clos de Pont" Marin 2013

Domaine Delalex Clos de Pont Marin

A single-vineyard wine from a very special site. Clos de Pont is a steep and stony site, with the vines planted right down to the banks of the glacier-fed Dranse river. It's a warmer site, protected from the northern winds called the bise.

Vinification Fermented in stainless steel tanks. Aged in tank for 9 months on fine lees, then a minimum of one year in bottle before release.No malolactic fermentation.

Tasting Notes Elegant and very complex, this structured wine should age well through 2020 at least. It is light-bodied but quite dense, with great acidity. Flinty and a little smoky, it shows plenty of notes of stones, almonds, honey, wild mountain herbs.
