Each of the grape varieties reaches maturity at different times, and are therefore vinified separately but using the same methods: cold settling at 8° after 48 hours and inoculation of the relatively clear juice with selected yeasts.
A brilliantly clear and bright yellow wine with delicate aromas, dominantly floral (honeysuckle) with touches of flint and subtly oaky notes. The palate is rich at first, developing vivacity and great freshness.
Food and wine pairing: fish in sauce, American lobster tails, poultry with cream, goat cheese.
The Mediterranean-type climate, which is typical throughout the appellation area, is marked by a significantly hot, dry season, mitigated by the effect of the landform. Due to the diversity and unique features of the different areas, major zones have been defined by their weather patterns and soil types.
There is a huge variety of soil types but hard limestone in the garrigue and schist soils are the most widespread. There is also gravel washed down by Languedoc’s rivers.
