Winemaker's Notes

The wine has a lovely pale gold tint and a fine, nicely open bouquet that leaves a typical Sauvignon impression together with some highly refined floral notes and a suggestion of toast. Clean on the palate, combining Sauvignon elegance with fresh citrus fruit and peach flavors, this youthful, crisply spirited wine extends into a round and rich, lingeringly aromatic finish of considerable refinement and distinction.

This Pays d'Oc wine comes from the region of Limoux, near Carcassonne, one of the oldest vineyards of Languedoc-Roussillon. The area is a mosaic of very different soils – shale, granite, limestone, sandstone – in stony terraces or gravelly ridges of red clay.
