Winemaker's Notes

Here is a vintage with a perfect scenario. There was a long ripening season and the winery had great pleasure in getting these nice ripe grapes full of freshness. As usual, the Viognier is very important as it floods the blend with its intensity. In this fresher vintage we find more mineral in the wines: flinty and limestony aromas. There are also notes of pineapple and papaya.

Blend: 20% Roussanne, 30% Viognier, 20% Marsanne, 25% Picpoul de Pinet, 5% Clairette
