Vin de Liège

Vin de Liège has masterfully demonstrated that it is possible to combine social purpose and economic profitability. Its cooperative model has also been emulated by the Walloon neo-vinegrowers, from Herve to Tubize. Vin de Liège has chosen interspecific grape varieties, the surface area currently planted being 16.3 hectares, with a subsoil of clayey or sandy limestone depending on the plot. The cellar, which is underground, allows gravity-fed work and blends beautifully into its environment. The estate is certified organic.

Contrepoint

On the plots of Souvignier Gris and Solaris that go into the assembly of Contrepoint, the average yield is 40 hl/ha. The grapes are harvested by hand. After complete destemming, they start their fermentation during the maceration phase. As soon as the wine is decanted, it is transferred to 500-litre barrels for a period of 12 months.

   Fairly deep straw colour.

   On the freshness, with pear aromas (typical of Souvignier Gris) and balsamic notes.

   Chiselled profile, with marked acidity. Nice length. 

   Fatty fish, poultry in sauce, hard cheeses such as mimolette.

   8-10°C
