Getting back to our roots, Alliance has been truffling around the back roads of France to uncover some vinous gems.

Montsablé, IGP D'Oc, Languedoc

The hills and slopes of Southern France are varied, offering a multitude of microclimates in which to grow premium grapes. Drawing on intimate knowledge of the terrain, we isolate pockets of excellence, harvesting both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with a view to obtaining wines of exquisite purity, balance and length.

The wines of Montsablé are inspired by the desire to craft elegant Burgundian varietals from Southern France. Working with growers in cooler sites of the St Chinian area of Languedoc that have lower vigour, we seek out fruit that delivers pure flavours and great balance.

In the winery, the fruit is handled carefully to build texture and mouthfeel, with oak only ever used to add just the most subtle of seasoning. The result is a Chardonnay with great palate weight, bright fruit and texture while our Pinot positively sings with lifted cherry and wild strawberry fruit.
