Grenache blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne
The grapes come from two different terroirs:
- North of Montpellier (Aniane, Montpeyroux, Pic Saint Loup, etc.)
- Vineyards that overlook the Mediterranean Sea, around La Clape.
The limestone soils (calcareous Gargasian marls and red Mediterranean soils dating back to the Barremian stage of the Cretaceous epoch) are not overly productive, limiting vine growth and promoting ripening of the grapes.
The grapes are destemmed, pressed, and then vinified in stainless steel tanks or in barrels. The temperature is maintained at 18°C.
Ageing: 85% stainless steel tanks 15% new French oak barrels for 6 months.
Pale gold in colour with transparent, crystalline gradations and silver tinges. Starts off round, rich, fresh and fruity on the palate. Lovely, complex flavours (toast, anise, mint, garrigue herbs, citrus fruit, honey). This wine exudes the freshness of sea air.
An elegant, well-balanced white wine with great personality and impressive length.
