Domain : Egiategia

In 2007, Emmanuel Poirmeur filed the patent for vinification and aging of wines under water .
This new process will seek the physical conditions necessary for carrying out winemaking: pressure, darkness, thermal inertia and above all agitation, particularly due to pressure variations linked to the tides.
Since 2008, EGIATEGIA has been carrying out fermentations in tanks in the Bay of Saint-Jean-de-Luz at a depth of 15m .
Prepare the tasting
Ideal Temperature: 8 - 10°C - i.e. 28 min in the refrigerator or 10 min in the freezer
Perfect Pairings: Iberian charcuterie, blue cheese, salmon tartare, shellfish
The view: A very clear and crystalline color with very fine bubbles which develop into foam during serving
The sense of smell: a mineral, saline and iodized nose in which we find the producer's underwater winemaking work.
The taste: a very fresh and chiselled palate around a palette of citrus fruits such as lime and yuzu lemon. More mineral and iodized tones and very fresh aromas of guava and passion fruit emerge later.
