Cuvée presentation

la Grange des Pères white has delightful white flower and citrus aromas with a hint of gun flint. The palate is fresh and creamy, with plenty of flavour and some wonderful empyreumatic notes on the lingering finish. This is a magnificent and truly harmonious Languedoc white. The wine is blended from Roussanne and Marsanne and enhanced by more atypical varieties such as Chardonnay and Gros Manseng. It has been barrel-aged for 24 months.

Information about domain Grange des Pères

Grange des Pères is Languedoc's greatest success story: it is the most famous domain, as well as the most sought after. To be fair, Laurent Vaillé is an extremely talented grower. The Vaillé family settled in the region in 1963, and Laurent took over the family business in 1992 after a training from Eloi Dürrbach at the Domaine de Trévallon, as well as Jean-François Coche-Dury. He has expanded the domain to an area of 11 hectares. The soils are worked without any use of chemical products. Although not certified as such, the domain seeks to adhere to biodynamic principles. The wine is vinified in parcels (in 50-hectolitre stainless steel tanks), and élevage is conducted in barrels over 24 months, with one-third new wood. The remarkable quality of the wines of Grange des Pères was recognised from the very first vintage. Prized by serious connoisseurs and collectors, its wines are now almost impossible for the average wine-lover to track down… except here at iDealwine ;).
