Sols Limestone scree with rounded stones
Location St Laurent de la Cabrerisse, altitude 150-200m
Culture ECOCERT certification – wine made with organic grapes since 1987
Grape varieties 80% Grenache blanc, 20% Roussanne
Vinified and aged for 9 months in French oak (demi-muid – 600 litres)
Eye A pale yellow wine, bright and clear, showing freshness and elegance.
Nose The white Grenache has a unique character and an elegant complexity, with seductive aromas of lemon, apricot and grapefruit. After aeration, it is the minerality which comes to the fore, with subtle notes of white flowers and redcurrants. As the Solus gains power it reveals a certain distinctive purity through notes of fresh almonds and toasted bread.
Palate Rounded and vibrant, with a long mineral finish, a perfect expression of our terroir.
Tips on serving Decant for an hour, and serve between 12° and 14°C – not too cold or the wine will not show its full complexity.
Food and wine matching suggestions Rock lobster in aspic, coquilles St Jacques, sole with wild mushrooms, foie gras with quince jelly… or our favourite, turbot en croûte with herb butter.
