Press Comments

Brian Elliott, Midweek Wines, November 2021: "Once largely a winemaker’s “texture adding” bit-part player in France’s Rhone Valley, the white version of grenache increasingly secures solo roles nowadays, particularly in the new world but – as in this example – also in Languedoc. Soft and delightfully aromatic, it contains white peach and crunchy apple flavours enlivened by sharp lime acidity and is given depth by a nicely balanced and creamy texture plus suspicions of grapefruit-based pithiness."
