White dry wine - bot.75cl - AOC Minervois blanc
It’s a pleasurable white, meaty, round with balance, the sort that you can open as easily for an aperitif as for a chic dinner party. Its golden robe gives out toasted aromas of tabacco, pineapple and white peach. In the mouth it’s fleshy, meaty, with good acid balance. The aromas that we found on the nose are present and re-enforced by the smell of spice cake.
This Minervois white, created from 90% marsanne grapes and 10 % Muscat petit grain, grows and ripens on a very special land at the foot of an ancient glacier, planted on limestone and marl ripped from the mountain by the glacier. The grapes which reach the limit of over-ripe are picked in the cool of the early morning, before being directly pressed. The juice is clarified by cold treatment and the fermentation process is thermo-regulated. It stays in vats for 3 months before being bottled.
Serving temperature : 6° to 8° C.
Ageing for 3 to 4 years without problems
Accompanying dishes : apart from aperitif, this wine can be served where you would normally serve a light red : fish in mustard and thyme sauce, ducks breast lacqued with acacia honey and lime, things in cream, scallops or shell fish in the oven, tasty cheeses…
