Grape: Rozaki 20%, Aspro Potamisi 80%
Alc. 

Made of direct press of feet-trod Aspro Potamisi (80%) and Rozaki (20%) grapes, each being fermented separately then assembled to undergo malolactic fermentation together, this cuvée, which is made each year, sometimes keeps a little residual sugars (4 to 6 g/L), sometimes is bone-dry. It stays 16 months on the fine lees.

Sainte-Obéissance — Holy Obedience in French, the name of the small mountain chapel at the foot of the Domaine's slopes — is typical of the "umami" fingerprint of the Domaine's wines, being very versatile in terms of food-pairing, accompanying a whole range of flavours, including spicyness to iodine-dominated ones. Its discrete almond bitterness is balanced with the saline touch which characterizes the very terroir of Falatados.

Memory of sugar — mostly displayed through roasted pineapple aroma — is a notion often employed to describe one of the features of Aspro Potamisi variety, which gives way after a fruitful mouth to a restricted acidity in aftertaste, sustaining the appetite-enhancing drive that has made this cuvée fit to join the wine list of gastronomic restaurants such as Michelin-starred Sushi Nakazawa or nordic Aquavit in NYC, Hunan or the Greenhouse in London, or acclaimed Relæ in Copenhagen.
