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. The 2018 vintage glimmers with green and yellow reflections. The nose is fruity and fresh with delicious notes of exotic fruit and mint accompanied by superb minerality on the finish. In the mouth it is incisive, refreshing but also offers compelling fruit and an agreeable fullness with a characteristic tough of salinity. This typical local grape variety is perfect with a shellfish platter, fish and seafood.

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.
