This is a blanc de blancs, i.e. produced with white grapes only: 30% Clairette, for floral aromas and finesse; 20% Grenache Blanc, for structure and creaminess; 25% Bourboulenc, which provides precious acidity to give a desirably nervy style; 22% Roussane, a highly aromatic variety (apricots especially) and 3% Picpoul and Picardan. Expressive and well-balanced. A bouquet of floral and exotic fruit aromas, with a mineral streak. On the palate, the same aromas of white flowers (hawthorn, acacia), fruity (pineapple and nice juicy locally-grown pears), a hint of aniseed, and appealing minerality courtesy of our fine soils. Ample mouthfeel and very well-balanced; hugely enjoyable when young, but can also be aged for a few years and really wow the buffs.
