Description

Résultat d’une démarche réfléchie et d’une connaissance pointue de nos terroirs, l’encépagement blanc du domaine se démarque par sa complexité et son originalité. La recherche de l’équilibre aromatique nous a conduit à associer des cépages exotiques (tels que le Petit Manseng, l’Albariño et le Verdejo) aux cépages traditionnels de la région (Marsanne, Roussanne, Maccabeu et Grenache Blanc) afin d’apporter une touche de fraicheur et d’acidité naturelle à l’assemblage final. Une cuvée subtile et élégante, tout en nuances.

Cépages

Petit Manseng, Grenache Gris, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, Albariño, Verdejo, Maccabeu

Terroir

PETIT MANSENG, ALBARIÑO, VERDEJO : Vignes du Peyral: Versant Sud du Pech, à l’abri du vent du Nord. Terroir frais. Parcelles plantées autour d’anciennes carrières de gypse dans une combe au sol mélangeant marnes à forte concentration ferrique et veines calcaires. MARSANNE, ROUSSANNE, GRENACHE BLANC, GRENACHE GRIS, MACCABEU : Vignes Cendrillon : Terrasses de l’Orbieu. Exposition Ouest. Sables argilo-calcaires situés au pied des côteaux du Pech.

Dégustation

Belle robe jaune pâle, limpide, aux reflets dorés. Arômes de fruits frais, d’agrumes, de pêches blanches et subtiles touches florales. Bel équilibre en bouche entre fraîcheur et onctuosité, délicates notes pâtissières qui soulignent l’harmonie et la minéralité en finale.

40% Petit Manseng, 26% Grenache Gris, 13% Grenache Blanc. Penetrating yellow apple, herb and nettle aromatics. Palate is bright and lively with excellent focus and mouthwatering freshness. Lovely length. Would be good with food.

 

 

17.5/20 | Parmi les cuvées les mieux notées de la dégustation Languedoc 2020 : Jancis Robinson
Nuance 2019
(EN) Quite complex on the nose: pineapples and gooseberries, ripe peaches and greengages, tarragon and black cardamom. Plus something just a little creamy/leesy. Full, and overflowing with a plethora of fruit from gooseberry green to mango gold and pretty much everything in between. Lustrous fruit, despite being bone dry and cut to shape by a crisp prism of acidity. An intriguing blend of varieties. Do not serve this too cold – it tasted best at cellar temperature of about 14 °C (57 °F). (TC)

17.5/20 : Jancis Robinson
Nuance 2017
Certified organic. Petit Manseng, Grenache Gris, Grenache Blanc, Maccabeu, Marsanne, Roussanne, Albariño, Verdejo.
Smells like sage and crab apples, wild, hedgerow-fruit kind of nose. Dusty, acacia. Builds and amplifies with layers of spring honey and cream and borage flower. A frisson of spice and dried wild flowers. A crescendo of flavours with a long, sure finish. A real beauty. Retails at around $16 in the US and tastes more than twice the price. Please will someone import it into the UK! VGV (TC)

16/20 : Jancis Robinson
Nuance 2014
Certified organic. Petit Manseng, Albariño, Verdejo, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris.
Dusty mimosa perfume. Piercing lemon-chalk focus that cuts across the palate leaving a curiously soft aftermath – like powdered rocks and citrus dust. (TC)
