HISTORY During the music festival The Worldwide Festival in Sète in 2019 the meeting with Virgil Abloh, American designer and DJ was very inspiring. Like the wines of Champagne, we had the idea of creating a Blanc de Noir from the South. Its name, Night Moves, is also that of a mythical place dedicated to music and natural wines located in Brooklyn.
GRAPE VARIETIES Grenache 80% Hamburg Muscat 20%.
TERROIR Small shelves leaning against a pioch (small hill) and surrounded by old kermes oaks and cypresses. Clay-limestone soil with the presence of flint and shell fossils.
CLIMATE Mediterranean, hot and dry. North-western exposure with a plunging view over the Hérault Valley and in the distance the foothills of the Larzac, swept by the Tramontane river.
VINIFICATION Hand-picked in 12 kg crates. Direct pressing of the 2 mixed grape varieties. We decided to delicately press these two black grape varieties to obtain a white. Only the heart of the press was kept for this confidential cuvée. Cold settling to precipitate the colouring matters. Then the juice fermented slowly in vats at a low temperature (18°C).
AGEING 4 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling.
TASTING Characteristic colour: “Oeil de perdrix” (Partridge eye). Delicate nose of flowers but also musky, with a surprisingly spicy side. Smooth structure in the mouth with great freshness.
GASTRONOMY Tielle de Sète; Cheeses; Pulled pork; Phô and Bo Bun; Goat cheeses
