Grape(s): 90% Grenache Blanc, 5% Roussanne, 5% Viognier.

A selection of parcels of old vines with naturally small yields is chosen for the cuvée Nostre Pais. Manual harvest with sorting and refrigeration of the grapes occurs. During vinification, direct pressing is used to preserve the acidity. Partial fermentation in barrels occurs (50% of the volume). Wine is aged “sur lies” during 6 months, and one single bottling run without filtration is done.

The wine appears pale yellow tinted with green, which announces a wine with a great deal of freshness and purity. The complex nose reveals floral and mineral notes with accents of fresh citrus fruits. The taste is lively and fresh, with aromas of flower and white fruits which blends with flint. The very soft finish evokes a great deal of minerality. Optimal service temperature: 10C-12C
