A wine of spun gold with green glints. Its highly expressive nose has greater amplitude than in the previous vintage, with aromas of white flowers, aniseed, orchard fruit and green apple. Such is the magic of blending. In the mouth we find excellent balance, great freshness and a juicy mouth-watering quality with a fruitiness that is underpinned by the fine tension of menthol and aniseed. A resolutely southern wine that is perfect for aperitif but also as an accompaniment to food.

Relatively protected from the Mistral and Tramontane winds by the distant Cevennes hills, the lie of this coastal terroir encourages the formation of sea breezes that temper the excessive heat of summer.
The Clairette du Languedoc is grown on Villafranchian terraces of quartz and flint, or agglomerated limestone.
Classic vinification with settling at 6°C for 24 hours followed by fermentation at 15°C for 10 days. The fine lees are set aside during the first racking after alcoholic fermentation. There is no malolactic fermentation in order to preserve maximum freshness.
Matured on fine lees for 4 months.
