The goal is to create a Côtes du Rhône white that brings together freshness with richness. Vines planted on terroirs with less sun exposure and in higher altitudes were selected. The choice of grapes is also fundamental: Viognier and white Grenache make up this blend. An early harvest, winemaking at low temperatures without oxidation...and voilà! - here you have a Vin Gourmand!
Straw yellow in colour with a particularly rich nose that surprises by its amplitude and precision. You will find lots of aroma: Exotic fruits (litchi, mango…), yellow peach and apricot fight for first place on the nose. On the palate this wine associates a round entry with a very pure final palate and plenty of vivacity.
This white Vin Gourmand, is a favourite as an aperitif as it is sufficiently rich to be able to seduce those who are not familiar with the appellation and sufficiently vivacious so as to not cut your appetite.
For food pairings, associate it with a trout with almonds, grilled fish à la plancha, a cool gazpacho or even with a plate of fresh goat’s or sheep’s cheeses. Serve chilled at 10°C/50°F.
Ageing potential: 3 years. - As with most du Rhône whites, it’s in their youth that you will most appreciate them.
