This ancient grape variety, native to the Languedoc, that grows around the perimeter of the Thau lagoon was largely forgotten at the end of the 20th century then rediscovered as a result of the resurgence of the Languedoc cultural identity. This new 2017 vintage once again offers up a wine with beautiful greenish gleams. The nose is refined and very fresh, with exotic, aniseed aromas. The mouth is clean, elegant, with persistent notes of citrus fruit and always that touch of salinity, characteristic of this grape, on the finish. It is a wine that will accompany a seafood platter, fish or white meat dishes to perfection, at any time of year.

The grapes are harvested at night to ensure they remain cool. They undergo a short maceration of about 4 hours before being pressed and fermented at around 16°C. When alcoholic fermentation is complete, the lees are stirred weekly to maintain them in suspension over a period of a month. There is no malolactic fermentation.
The wine is aged in vats on lees for three months.
