Felicette Grenache Blanc

The vineyard is planted on the plains and foothills in the south of France, between the Pyrénées and the Mediterranean Sea between Narbonne and Beziers. The area benefits from two distinctive climates that allow the production of a large diversity and styles of wines: the Mediterranean climate for ripe and juicy wines and the Atlantic climate around Carcassonne for more structured and mineral wines. Clay – limestone soils, vines grown Cordon de Royat, a plant density of between 4000 and 5000 vines/ha, yield of 75 hl/ha.

The wine benefits from a period of cold skin contact and maceration. Pressing of the Grenache Blanc grapes is carried out in a pneumatic press with separation of free-run juice from pressed must. Cold static must settling then a settling on the fine lees with stirring to highlight the richness of the wine. The wines are then racked off the lees to prevent malolactic fermentation.

Bright yellow colour with green highlights. An intense but fresh bouquet combining mint, pear, dry apricot and white flowers. A wonderfully fresh palate of mango and a hint of spice leading into a crispy lime zest finish. Unwooded and starry bright.

This will pair well with salads, shellfish, grilled fish, white meats in a creamy sauce.
