Tasting Note

Pale yellow with glints of green, nutty on the nose with a hint of exotic fruits such as mango and honeydew melon over a discreet aroma of oak. Full and broad on the palate, its richness is cut by firm acidity.

The vineyard is located in Girlan, on calcareous and red soils at 450 m above sea level. Harvest is carried out in mid September with a yield of 45 hectolitres per hectare. The grapes are carefully placed whole and undamaged into the press. The juice is then transferred to 225 litre French oak barrels, where it is fermented at 24° C. After this, the young wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and is matured on the fine lees. After 11 months' barrel ageing, the wine is matured subsequently for several months in bottle prior to release.

Food Recommendation

It is excellent enjoyed on its own, or with Italian pasta dishes, grilled fish and dishes of white meats.


  • A hit with our judges, and a clear candidate for Gold, this showed ‘oak and minerality on the nose, leading to more well-integrated oak on the palate, with some toasted sesame and good fruit, too’, according to Street XO’s Raphael Thierry, while team leader Angela Reddin found ‘white peach, crème anglaise and lemon posset, leading to a crunchy palate of cashews and lime’. ‘Lovely, delicate and light on the nose, yet very deep and complex on the palate,’ concluded Quentin Loisel of Restaurant Sat Bains.
