Delicately pale with light gold reflections. As with the previous vintage, the nose is forthright with white blossom, star anis and mint, finishing with a few lemony touches. Expressive, fresh and fruity in the mouth, it is full of lovely stone fruit like vine peach, white peach, a touch of apricot and always the slight bitterness of fresh almond. And finally, the sweet richness of date and a sprinkling of spice. Superb balance between smoothness and freshness in this perfect representation of the Mediterranean style. Enjoyable as an aperitif or to accompany food.

Languedoc boasts a great variety of terroirs and soil types, so we select indigenous grapes from areas where they can best express themselves. Our Grenache Blanc comes from the splendid granitic and schist soils in north-west Roussillon, while our Marsanne and Roussanne achieve optimum ripeness in the foothills of the Cévennes. A few isolated parcels of Terret Bourret here and there add a not insignificant touch of originality.
Traditionally vinified. Settling at 6 °C for 24 hours, then fermented at 15 °C for 10 days. The fine lees are kept at the first racking, after the alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation is not practised in order to retain maximum freshness.
The four varieties are racked and then blended before a maturing period of 3 months on fine lees.
