Extraordinary brilliance in this spun gold wine. The nose is markedly mineral, a little flinty with aromas of grapefruit, white blossom and a hint of musk. Fennel, aniseed and a delightful touch of sweet almond reveal its Mediterranean origins. In the mouth it is powerful, round, with gentle tannins, and notes of citrus, pineapple, mango and lemon that are underlined by spices. This wine's immense complexity means that we can enjoy its splendidly typical qualities whilst young, but is also a promise of a great future.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
In the heart of 200 uninterrupted hectares the Domaine sits in a remarkable geographical position. At altitudes near to 300 metres, the cultivated plots are surrounded by richly diverse woodland and wild Mediterranean scrub. The rolling hills and valleys essentially composed of sandy clay and chalk with outcrops of limestone rock allow each type of vegetation to find its ideal situation and orientation. The estate is a complex mix of geological and climatic influences at the confluence of the terroirs of the Corbières, Limoux, the Malepère, the Cabardès and the Minervois.
