Minerality

At one time in the early 19th Century, Ondenc was widely planted in various parts of south-west France (particularly Bordeaux) and the Loire Valley. It was used in the production of dry, sparkling and sweet wines, as well as in Cognac and Armagnac; an hommage to which is represented in the shape to this bottle. Highly perfumed notes of meyer lemon, honeydew melon, hay and white flowers leap from the glass. The acidity is thriving and pushes a weighty mineral texture towards its crisp and refreshing finish with exit notes of sea shells and almond blossoms. Less than 2,000 bottles are produced.
