La Vie En Orange, Maison François Ducrot


Complex blend of Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier

François Ducrot, born & raised in Burgundy, graduated in 2006 as a trained oenologist at the Institut de la Vigne et du Vin in Dijon. He spent a number of years as Cellar Master at Domaine Enclos de la Croix, in Lansargues, before setting up his own domaine. This wine is part of his ‘Les Moutons’ collection, which is named after their favourite natural weed killer – sheep!

The grapes spend around two weeks on skins, followed by three months aging on fine lees in a stainless steel tank. The wine has a pale gold color with a hint of orange. Aromas of apples and pears with a hint of orange, followed by floral notes. The palate is complex, with hints of peach and lychees and a subtle green tea-like tannin structure. The wine has a nice acidity and a long finish.
