Cuvée presentation

This cuvée is produced from the typical Languedocian blend of White Ugni, White Grenache, Clairette and Rolle. It is vinified in 40 hectolitre foudres and 600 litre demi-muids and then barrel-aged in foudres for nine months. The wine is very fruity with citrus aromas and some hints of white flower. The palate is vivacious and dense with real character.

Information about domain Aupilhac

Sylvain Fadat and his wife Désirée both have an obsession with vines and terroir. They founded their domain in Montpeyroux, some thirty kilometres north-west of Montpellier, a little over twenty years ago. Their 22-hectare vineyards are planted on two very different terroirs: the south-west-facing terraces of the Aupilhac lieu-dit, and the Les Cocalières site – higher, and therefore cooler – where Syrah is so much at home, and therefore dominates. The northernmost part is home to white grapes (Roussanne, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc and Rolle). Here, both the landscape and the wines have been shaped by human hands; ploughing, manual harvesting, minimal intervention, bottling without filtration: everything possible is done to preserve the identity of the terroir as much as possible.
