Tasting Notes

Easy-drinking, unoaked and a classic french-style table wine. Citrus and pear on the nose with citrus flesh and nice weight on the palate, quite a ripe, round finish.

Vinification

An unusual blend of Viognier (30%), Picpoul Blanc (30%) and Grenache Blanc (40%). Sourced from clay limestone soils in Richerenes in the Vaucluse for the Grenache Blanc and Picpoul, with the Viognier sourced in the Northern Rhône (so the wine is classified as Vin de France). Vinified in stainless steel, with a short maceration of one week. Alex Favier then puts the final blend together.

Food Matching

Coconut flavoured Thai and Vietnamese dishes, or as a delicious foil to barbecued or grilled mackerel.
