Guide RVF " Les meilleurs vins de France 2014" - 14,5/20
Colour : pale yellow colour with green tints.
Nose : the wine exhibits citrus aromas (lemon, grapefruit) with smoky notes.
Mouth : fresh and very aromatic attack.
The palate is round, with a great acidity (coming from the later ripening sites at higher altitude). A lot of freshness on the finish mixed with salty notes, which express the minerality of the wine.
Blend of Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Macabeu.
A part of the grapes comes from limestone and clay soils in the Agly Valley; the other part from granite soils at higher altitude
(500m, later ripening sites).
Grapes are hand-harvested.
After pressing, the must is cold-settled. Vinification is performed in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.
Ageing lasts a few months in order to keep all the freshness and enhance the minerality.
