This is grown (fairly) high up in the hills of the Terrasses du Larzac, 30 or so km north-west of Montpellier, where the nights are a little cooler and the growing season a couple of weeks longer than further south. Fermented and aged 12 months in barrel, it exhibits a gorgeously complex nose of apples and citrus, orange blossom, spring flowers and a lick of judicious oak. The palate offers juicy peach and apple flavours, with a touch of soft citrus, a hint of peppery spice and a lightly nutty/waxy texture, with a gentle richness offset by a touch of grape tannin and fabulous acidity. A really lovely wine, and for a top Languedoc white, worth every penny.
