Winemaking

The grapes are harvested in the coolest hours of the night then go direct-to-press in an oxygen-free environment to ensure the full integrity of its aromas is preserved. The blend promotes aromatic complexity in the wines, mingling fresh, fruity notes with spicy scents. Ageing on fine lees after alcoholic fermentation bolsters volume on the palate.

Food & Wine Pairings

Appealing delicate pale pink with shimmering highlights. Great aromatic complexity on the nose driven by moreish notes of red berry fruits and citrus flowing into floral notes. The palate is brimming with fruity and spicy flavours with a mineral edge that gives it lots of character. Very pleasant fresh feel on the finish.

Capitoul - Ôde can be enjoyed as an aperitif, or paired with tapas, a bunch of prawns, grilled sea bream, a vegetarian tagine or even a strawberry panna cotta.

AOP Languedoc

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.
