Mastering the nuances of Southern French varietals and combining traditional and modern winemaking techniques, Xavier Roger wines are a superb example of the quality that are now being produced in the South of France. Using the best parcels in the area, the quality of the range is truly outstanding.
Bright and pale yellow in the glass. The nose displays hints of green apple skin, citrus fruit and fresh cut grass. This bone-dry white shows terrific balance, with refreshing acidity and minerality. The limestone mouthfeel is supplemented by juicy grapefruit aromas on the finish.
Enjoy on its own or with your favourite food: fresh oysters, Pan-Asian fish, fried chicken and vegetable curry.
Wine Merchant Top 100, 2022. Brian Elliot, Midweek Wines, June 2021: "It is easy to think of Chenin Blanc as mainly a Loire or South African grape variety but, as this version testifies, it also prospers in Languedoc. Cooler parts of that region produce textured, largely dry white wines with acidic zing like this. Fresh but nicely textured, it provides ripe melon, apple and white peach flavours coupled here with grapefruit verve, ginger elements and just a hint of sweetness"
