Description: Coralie and Anthony Rassin worked in various wines regions in France and abroad before settling in the appellation Montlouis. Coralie made wines at Jaboulet and Francois Villard and Anthony worked for Pierre Gonon. They took up the challenge to run their own vineyard and winery and put their experiences to work. In late 2015, they acquired the Montlouis estate, Domaine Flamand Deletang in St Martin Le Beau in its entirety. They renamed it Domaine Les Pierres Ecrites to make a new start while also giving a nod to the prior owner, whose grandfather was a famed archeologist of prehistoric drawings on stones in North Africa. The Petits Boulay is the wine obtained from the first picking, hand harvested and aged on the fine lees in stainless steel. Soft mineral tones combined with notes of quince, apricot, and white flowers.
Food pairings: Apples, apple desserts, Asian cuisine, goat cheese, jerk chicken, fried food, roasted pork, salads, smoked fish (Salmon), spicy food, veggies, etc.
