The cuvee Triptyque is balanced between three aromatic ranges: fruits, minerals and light wood notes. On the palate, richness and ampleness dominate yet the freshness of Sauvignon Blanc is always present. Wood notes appear at the finish.

Old vines, centuries-old oak and long maturation on lees create this cuvee for aging. Selected from a parcel of vines over 70 years-old growing in the exceptional terroir of Saint Andelain (clay marl and flint), this cuvee is vinified in 300 and 600 liter oak barrels (1/4 new oak, 3/4 in 2,3 and 4 year-old barrels). The barrels are made from oak of the Bertrange forest located about 20 kilometers from Pouilly. This forest, like the Tronçais forest, was planted during the time of Sully more than 300 years ago. These old, slow-growing oaks have very fine grain which is ideal for wine. One year of aging on lees allows the wine to express the minerality of its terroir, oak notes only appear at the finish.
