Released for the first time in 7 years since 2009! After selling grapes to other producers for five years from 2010, he canceled the buying grape contract in 2015 and revived La Traversenne as a domaine wine. The wine has finesse and a long finish, and you can feel the salty taste as if you were drinking soup stock from shellfish. Also, because the minerals are tight, the taste is not heavy and even a refreshing feeling is felt even if the contents are firmly condensed. It's delicious enough to drink now, but it looks interesting even if you let it rest a little longer.

Aromas of grapefruit, mangosteen, pineapple, pear compote, blue almonds, panettone and curry powder. The wine is pure, tight and finesse, with skeletal acids and refined minerals blending nicely into the condensed umami extract.
