Skin contact for 20 hours. L’Inconnue (“The Unknown”) is an occasional release for Union Sacré and is reserved for those rare wines that break with their expected style to dazzling effect. Named after one of the most widely reproduced models of the early 20th century: the death mask of an unknown girl pulled from the Seine. Her tranquil smile inspired a thousand sculptures and paintings. So lasting was her beauty that her likeness is still being used today. It is our hope that the l’Inconnue wines bring some amount of that wonder. Bone dry with notes of grapefruit, lemon, granny smith, and a touch of orange peel.
