100% white grenache

Serve at 16°C, lightly aired

Cellaring : 5 to 10 years after harvest

A limpid, golden yellow colour.
The complex and refined nose smells slightly oxydised (though this is normal) , with a mix of crystallized orange zest and almond, ending in delicate fruit caramel aromas.
The mouth, which is surprisingly fresh, reveals notes of grapefruit and flowers, mainly honeysuckle, with fine tannins which bring everything together.

« Virgile »  White 2004  VIN de PAYS  de L’HERAULT

A high class white wine of a golden yellow colour.
It is well rounded and mineral, with aromas of gingerbread, butter, hazelnut and white flowers.

Its freshness and length allow it to accompany refined dishes as well as spicy ones.
It is the perfect accompaniment to white fish such as sole and turbot, dishes with creamy sauces or sweet and sour recipes.

Food & wine pairing: its tastes and aromas also lend themselves to it accompanying chicken or capon and especially strong cheeses.

This wine is clear and brilliant, it has a lovely colour of white gold with reflections of yellow straw and bold ‘tears’.

The first nose is that of pure white fruit, white flowers, breadcrumbs and aniseed.

The initial taste is supple, becoming rounded, with a vivacious finish. The lasting flavour is that of white fruits and wild fennel. The final taste is ripe and aged acidity.

The wine has a lovely pale yellow colour with reflections of gold, it is shiny and crystal clear and its’ ‘tears’ are long and rich.

The first ‘nose’ is of delicate aniseed, white pepper and fresh white bread.  The second ‘nose’ releases clean and pure aromas of yellow flowers such as lime blossom.

Its’ first taste is round and supple with a final freshness.  It has hints of dried fruits, white fruits and fresh almonds, with an impressive lasting mineraly flavour. This wine would be a perfect compliment to the characteristic Mediterranean dishes.
