Wine of Languedoc
This Sauvignon blanc is cultivated on limestone soils of the Gard département, in the plains of the Hérault, and the
Aude Valley. A part of the blend comes from the east of the Aude (cool region). The young vines grown on terraces and are pruned according to the “Cordon de Royat” method (trellised). The average yield is 40 to 50 hl/ha.
Grapes are harvested early in the morning and transported rapidly to the winery. Pressing is made after a short period of skin contact (about 8 hours). The alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at low temperatures (15 to 18°C). Then, the wine is aged on its fine lees for a few months in a carbon dioxide atmosphere. Early bottling. No malolactic fermentation.

Grape Varieties: Sauvignon 100 %.
Tasting Notes : Our Sauvignon Blanc has a lovely pale yellow colour. It is rich and aromatic with intense scents of fruit (gooseberry, passion fruit, green tomatoe, wild strawberry and lemon). It also displays floral nuances (honeysuckle), and mineral “flinty” scents from the limestone soil. It is very fresh on the palate with a good acidity and natural hints of CO2 which give its freshness. Rich, round and well-balanced finish.
Food & Wine: Serve well chilled (8°C), as an apéritif, with seafood, fish or summer dishes (asparagus, mixed salads).
