Our blanc comes from the white Lutetian limestone soils of the Gassac valley, perfect for creating a rich, complex, yet approachable white wine. As the 2020 harvest is yet to start, the exact blend is yet to be determined; however, the typical composition of the Blanc is 25% Viognier, 25% Chardonnay, 25% Petit Manseng, 15% Chenin Blanc and 10% other grape varieties including Courbu from Bearn, Petite Arvine from Valais, Rhole from Provence, Marsanne from the Rhone valley and 10 other rare grape varieties.

There are truly two lives of this wine. Within the first 3 years, you can appreciate the wonderful fruity flavors, that drink beautifully as an aperitif or with food. After the 3-4 year mark, the wine takes on a new life as the youthful fruitiness will have disappeared, to be replaced by new flavours reminiscent of "sherry" or old "Sauternes", a touch "oxidative" with great finesse. Take care: if you are not looking for this type of wine, slightly paradoxical as it ages, drink our white wines within the first couple of years.
