Winemaker's Notes

This cuvee represents Michel Gassier's search for elegance, purity and mineral/terroir expression. Grape ripeness is not pushed to the outer limits, sorting is drastic, oak aging is kept to a minimum, and blending includes 3 varietals of the appellation. Michel Gassier's winemaking style is as non interventionist as possible, resulting in this elegant, pure wine.

Blend: 53% Grenache Blanc, 38% Roussanne, 6% Viognier, 3% Bourboulenc

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and lush, with green and yellow apple and melon flavors, lined with singed almond and salted butter notes. A quinine edge adds needed cut and freshness on the finish. "

Between the brisk winds and an elevation of 400 meters, the grapes' freshness is protected and then preserved during vinification in concrete tanks.
