A brilliant, gleaming gold. Superb expression on the nose that offers a wide aromatic palette taking in white flowers, cardamom, white fleshed fruit, and hints of liquorice. Deliciously fresh and well-balanced in the mouth, it has a smooth fruitiness expressed in notes of candied orange and lemon, all underscored by the tautness of menthol and aniseed. A wine of resolutely Mediterranean character which is a delight as an aperitif or at table.

Terroir

Relatively protected from the Mistral and Tramontane winds by the distant Cevennes hills, the lie of this coastal terroir encourages the formation of sea breezes that temper the excessive heat of summer. The Clairette du Languedoc is grown on Villafranchian terraces of quartz and flint, or agglomerated limestone.

Vinification

Classic vinification with settling at 6°C for 24 hours followed by fermentation at 15°C for 10 days. The fine lees are set aside during the first racking after alcoholic fermentation. There is no malolactic fermentation in order to preserve maximum freshness.

Ageing

Matured on fine lees for 4 months.
