Coteaux de Bessilles Muscat Sec Félines Jourdan Information
About the domain
Domaine Félines Jourdan has belonged to the family since the early 1980s, but they are winegrowing with savoir-faire accumulated from their ancestors; they have now reached the fifth generation of winemakers. Perched on the Mediterranean coast in the Languedoc region, the vineyard benefits from the maritime breeze and local sunshine. Their aim is to preserve as much of the freshness and delicacy of the grape varietals in the wine, which is vinified and raised in thermoregulated stainless steel vats.
About the cuvée
Vinified in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks, this Muscat has an attractive lemon-yellow appearance and a bouquet exuding notes of citrus fruit, flowers and exotic fruit. A tart palette lends it vivacity and lightness, enabling it to be enjoyed as an apéritif or with delicate foods.

General : The «bio» designation covers certified wines produced by biodynamic or organic methods, sustainably produced wines, and «environmentally friendly» wines that are not officially certified. These designations apply to recent vintages (the date of certification, if known, is specified in the estate description). See the blog article for more information on this designation.
Biodynamic : The «biodynamic» designation is used for all estates certified as using biodynamic methods, as verified by one of the two official bodies, Demeter or Biodyvin. All wines produced by biodynamic methods are also certified as organic. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Organic : The «organic» designation covers all estates certified as using organic methods, as verified by one of the bodies approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, such as Ecocert. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Sustainable : The «sustainable» designation covers all estates certified as using integrated or High Environmental Value (level 3 Environmental Certification) techniques. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Evironmentally friendly : The «environmentally friendly» designation refers to estates practising environmentally friendly wine-growing techniques, but that have not opted for certification or who are still in the process of converting to organic agriculture or biodynamics. These estates may have adopted biodynamic principles (non-certified) or simply no longer use chemical products. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Natural : Wines which are produced without any added sulfur (or almost any) and with no other inputs. However, given that there is no official body to issue the natural wine label, it is based on winemakers’ statements. This designation applies to recent vintages.
