This dry white is a blend of Clairette, Roussanne and White Grenache from the ancient vineyards of Saint Privat, Southern France. The nose is open with aromas of white fruit, citrus, slightly toasted notes and minerality. Round and smooth on the palate with balanced acidity. Pair with white meat, salads, and fresh seafood. Hand-picking, indigenous yeasts, and organic farming techniques used. Drink now or age 5-10 years.
Les Vignes Oubliées is the story of some long forgotten vineyards on the high terraces and in the cooler valleys of the Larzac foothills. Comprising very old and rare ancestral vines at an altitude of 300 to 400m, they have been revived and are cultivated by a group of local growers. They are worked naturally, on small parcels of land, amongst the woodlands of the commune of Saint Privat, a unique and well-preserved old village. The grapes are vinified and the wine matured by Jean-Baptiste Granier.
