Each year, Christophe Ferrandis ages some of his Vermentinù in one or two new barrels to “season” them before using them to age the red Nielluciù in the future. These barrels become the elusive cuvée Clos Signadore Blanc, which offers a powerfully delicious counterargument to those who dismiss white wines aged in new oak.
