Quick Overview:



2012 Vintage

AOC Costieres De Nimes France
Grape-varieties: Grenache blanc (75%), Roussanne (25%).

Wine-making: This is traditional wine-making . After being gently crushed with a pneumatic press the fermentation takes place on fine lees inside stainless-steel tanks. The temperature is controlled at 18°C in order to obtain the best aromatic extraction. After racking and filtering, the wine is bottled at the Château.

Wine-tasting: It is brilliant light-yellow-coloured wine. The bouquet is a perfumed mixture of flowers, fruit and fresh almonds, all with a smoked scent. In the mouth the fresh beginning becomes quickly round and one rediscovers the fruity complexity and smoked scent of the bouquet but with the added flavour of pineapple.

Ageing: This wine is best drunk young for its primary aromas, but 2 or 3 years of maturation will add to its complexity.
Served with: Served at 14°C, it is perfect with seafood and goat's cheese , such as Pélardon des Cevènnes.
