80% Grenache Blanc & Gris, 15% Vermentino and 5% Marsanne, fermented and aged in new oak barrels for 8 months. The colour is an ultra-pale, limpid straw/gold, with green glints. The nose offers a complex array of fruit and floral aromas, with notes of peach, apricot, orange blossom and honeysuckle, in combination with a gentle herbaceousness, redolent of cut grass, anise and herbs de Provence, with just the merest hint of oak. The more you sniff, the more it reveals. The palate is wonderfully fresh and crisp - gently citrussy, herby and even a touch spicy, with a gently creamy/oily texture and again just a hint of oak. It isn't overtly rich, though it offers plenty of concentration, with an element of maritime/saline minerality and a modicum of grape tannin, all of which is countered by laser-like acidity. This sheer elegance of this wine, coming as it does from the sun-drenched hills of the Cote Vermeille, might just take you by surprise. A delicious and delightfully refreshing, yet complex white wine.
