Our friend Michele D'Aprix describes her wine for us.

In an effort to quench my literal and professional thirst for white wine in Bordeaux, I have now arrived in the Pellegrue sector, near the commune of Landerrouat, in the heart of Entre-Deux-Mers. My mentor and friend, Stephane Derenoncourt, started this project in four gravelly-clay and limestone parcels that are harvested by
hand, and vinified separately, employing a slow press and temperature controlled fermentations via wild yeast, in stainless steel tanks.
