A lovely straw/gold colour, with green glints. The nose is delightfully aromatic and complex - herbaceous and fruity at the same time, with notes of caraway, fennel, mint and hay, mingled with fresh apple and peach, a hint of mandarin orange, a whiff of toasty oak and more stony minerality than you can shake a stick at! If it smells good, it tastes even better, with beautifully ripe, juicy, garrigue herb-infused stone fruit and soft citrus flavours, again with a mineral tang and mouth-watering acidity. With genuine complexity, it manages to be soft and approachable, yet beautifully poised and structured at the same time, in a northern Rhône-meets-Burgundy sort of way, with a very long, cool, minty/spicy/tangy finish. From one of the great Languedoc growers, this is consistently (vintage after vintage) our favourite Languedoc white wine - and, given its ageing potential, well worth the asking price. A lovely wine! Biodynamic.
