Beautifully bright with light green gleams. Highly aromatic notes of mango, papaya and lime on the nose, finishing elegantly with a fine minerality underscored by thiol and lightly aniseed notes. The mouth is full and rich in an exotic register of mandarin, pink grapefruit, and pineapple. A superbly fresh wine that is pure and limpid with astonishing complexity and vivacity. This blend of Sauvignons from different terroirs offers all the diversity and richness that typifies the Villa Blanche range.
IGP Pays d’Oc
100% SAUVIGNON BLANC
12.% alc. /vol
The vines grow in three different zones of the Languedoc… Mediterranean, Oceanic and Pyrenean, in gravelly, limestone clay terroirs. This enables us to produce a superbly balanced Sauvignon Blanc of immense complexity.
The grapes are picked at night in two harvests. One that is early to obtain natural freshness in the wine, and the second ten days later to give us outstanding concentration and varietal aromas. Total destemming is followed by maceration for two hours at 5°C and fermentation in thermo-regulated vats at 14°C. There is no malolactic fermentation.
100% aged in stainless steel vats on fine lees.
