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
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.
