Shimmering pale gold and green with a nose bursting with floral aromas, lime, aniseed and mint. In the mouth we discover a wine of great integrity, freshness and fruit. As is often the case with this blend, stone fruit such as vine peach, white peach and apricot dominate, with a subtle weft of spice and a lovely touch of bitter green almond on the finish. Its perfect balance between smoothness and freshness offers a wine of pure Mediterranean style that is as good as an aperitif as it is with 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.
