Ærlinn, or 'song of the sea', is the namesake of Kim and Étienne's daughter, also born in 2021. The inception of this wine is likened to raising a child. Étienne remembers his grandfather belief that every vintage is a new child. Full ripeness and maximum phenolic maturity in the Grolleau is sought for showcasing the notes of white fruit and flowers in high concentration. The yield of the plot is capped at 45hL/ha. The low pH in the limestone in the plot contributes to the freshness in this wine.
